Investigators and Clinicians
The Mayo Clinic Center for Translational Science Activities (CTSA) provides resources and services to assist investigators and clinicians in productively engaging in and with the community. Much of this activity is coordinated through the Office for Community-Engaged Research (OCER).
Types of research supported include:
- Community-engaged research, which involves community members in various aspects of the research process
- Community-based participatory research (CBPR), a type of community-engaged research that emphasizes equitable partnerships between communities and researchers
- Practice-based research through the Mayo Clinic Health System Practice-Based Research Network
Resources and services
The Mayo Clinic CTSA offers a wide range of consultative support services and physical resources to assist investigators in direct community engagement, or in conducting translational research that will have direct effects on community health and well-being.
