“Doing Translational Research,” the new BCTR podcast
April 7, 2016
BCTR projects actively do translational research (TR) in their work to address the most pressing human problems, but the center, and projects, also study and advance the processes which make for effective translation of research into practice. Our new podcast, Doing Translational Research, features conversations from researchers, practitioners, and others involved in the process of doing TR, exploring what they study and how they connect and work with others to strengthen research and practice.
Our first episodes are now available on Soundcloud, Stitcher, and iTunes (search on "Doing Translational Research"). In our first episode, BCTR director Karl Pillemer interviews Cornell professor of nutritional science Carol Devine. Professor Devine studies how food choices over the life course are shaped by life transitions, social roles, and the lived environment. In episode two, Karl talks with Charles Izzo, a research associate in the BCTR whose work focuses on factors that influence the quality of interactions between those in the helping professions (youth workers, home visitors) and the clients they serve.
