The complexity and intractability of today’s health problems and the pressing need for solutions demand that scientists from multiple disciplines collaborate to generate novel insights and approaches to improve individual and population health. However, working together in cross-disciplinary teams is not easy. It often requires forming new relationships, carrying out our research in new ways, and developing new skills.
Attendees will learn how to:
- identify the strengths of a team science approach
- bring collaborators together around a health topic
- approach the establishment of a successful team
- develop and maintain relationships with team members and community partners
- overcome common challenges in team science collaboration
Talks are appropriate for health researchers across career levels, including graduate students, pre and post-doctoral trainees, faculty members and research support staff.
