What is CBPR?
Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) is an emerging orientation to research and scientific inquiry that equitably involves both community stakeholders and investigators at all levels of the research process from design to dissemination. CBPR involves a partnership between the community and the investigator where each group shares ownership of the process and products of research collaboration.
Through its consulting service, Community Health Innovation and Research Program (HC-CHIRP) at Harvard Catalyst offers advice and training to Harvard researchers and community partners seeking to conduct translational research in community settings.
