- An overview of T3/T4 research that focuses on the translation of findings from research in controlled environments to general clinical practice and population health
|An introductory course on the T3/T4 translational research domains.||T3/T4 Research: Translating Effective Interventions into Practice|
The goal of T3/T4 research is to address gaps in knowledge that persist after the efficacy and safety of interventions have been defined in optimal settings. It includes studies designed to encourage the use of these interventions in routine care settings, both locally and globally, and to modify risk factors for disease.
This course provides an opportunity for fellows and junior faculty to become familiar with the tools, and vocabulary of T3/T4 research. Sessions are designed to help participants understand the motivations for T3/T4 research and the relationship between this domain and other T-domains. Participants will also develop an appreciation for the broad range of study designs and methods employed by T3/T4 researchers, as well as understand how the choice of research methods affects feasibility and potential study implications.
T3/T4 research addresses questions such as:
Presentations will include formal introductory lectures on T3/T4 research methods, as well as case examples presented by researchers actively working in this space.
Learning about the T spectrum (T1-T4 phases of research) is critical to understanding clinical and translational research. Watch a Harvard Catalyst video that demonstrates these phases.
