NEWDIGS Leadership, with partners from the Tufts Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), have written a chapter in the upcoming publication: Broadly Engaged Team Science in Clinical and Translational Research (Springer International Publishing, 2022). The chapter, titled “Broadly Engaged Team Science Comes to Life in a Design Lab,” features the NEWDIGS Design Lab as a practical exemplar for the book’s main theme. The chapter describes ongoing experience in adapting Design Labs as we know them in FoCUS and LEAPS for application within NIH’s CTSI network of more than 50 medical research sites.
The book will be a resource on practical, sustainable, and effective diversity and inclusion initiatives in medical research, from team-building to patient advocacy to institutions, by using a range of real-life examples of strategy implementation, and how to engage a diverse team of scientific and stakeholder partners in research. It features case studies and contributions drawn from basic science, clinical, translational, health policy, and social science research.
