Synergy in Basic and Applied BSSR

Graduate Training Programs in Translational Science

A major barrier to effective synergy between "basic" and "applied" BSSR is that individual investigators typically have been trained primarily on one side or the other of that spectrum. The traditional solution to this problem is collaboration: more "basic" and more "applied" scientists can learn to collaborate with each other. This solution has been somewhat effective and collaboration will always been important. But it is now possible to imagine a new graduate training model that is truly translational in the sense that, at the completion of the training, individual trainees will possess all the knowledge, skills, and abilities they'll need to conduct translational science. OBSSR can and should support both the development and the implementation of such a training model.
