CHSR to lead Tracking & Evaluation Core of UK’s Center for Clinical and Translational Science

CHSR was recently selected to direct the Tracking & Evaluation Core of UK’s Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS). Led by Dr. Phil Kern, the CCTS champions innovation across the spectrum of clinical and translational research, and educates the translational workforce of the future. Tracking & Evaluation by CHSR combines formative and summative evaluation techniques, and utilizes mixed methods approaches that incorporate both traditional and translational metrics. CHSR is engaged with CCTS Core Directors and leadership to develop component-specific evaluation plans and timelines, and to select key metrics and qualitative process measures to examine progress and impact. Our robust metrics-based evaluation will allow us to examine short-term impacts of the CCTS and to examine the collective or synergistic impact of CCTS hub functions and complex activities.
