"The opportunity for low-income and minority students to participate in research is driven in part by a National Science Foundation requirement that scientists seeking basic-research grants must also identify the "broader impacts" of their research and grant solicitors are increasingly pointing to high-school programs."

Translational Science Spectrum

Translational Science Spectrum

The translational science spectrum represents each stage of research along the path from the biological basis of health and disease to interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public. The spectrum is not linear or unidirectional; each stage builds upon and informs the others. At all stages of the spectrum, NCATS develops new approaches, demonstrates their usefulness and disseminates the findings. Patient involvement is a critical feature of all stages in translation.
