CTSI Support for Community Engagement and Population Health Research

The mission of the Community Engagement and Population Health Research (CEPHR) Core of the NYU-HHC Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) is to engage communities in all phases of the research process. Through effective community engagement strategies, we can enhance meaningful translation and effective dissemination of evidence-based research findings and strategies into clinical and health practices, and ultimately reduce health challenges and disparities in New York City communities.

CEPHR promotes community engagement and population health research through numerous activities, including its Consultation Service; its Seminar Series; the Collaborative Translational Pilot Project Initiative offered by the CTSI; its faculty-community workgroups; by developing research linkages and infrastructure between HHC and NYU, by assisting researchers to secure extramural funding, and with its education and training initiatives.
