The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) SciTs Team was formed in 1999 (with the original name, Evaluation of Large Initiatives (ELI) team) with a primary charge to better understand the processes, outcomes and impacts of the large transdisciplinary center grant initiatives supported by the NCI. The NCI SciTS Team is located in the Science of Research and Technology Branch (SRTB) in the Behavioral Research Program (BRP), part of the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) of NCI.
The SciTS Team has had a longstanding interest in assessing whether these center grants, which support transdisciplinary team science, offer added value compared to traditional investigator-initiated research, in terms of research productivity, innovation, and translational applications to cancer prevention and treatment.
The current mission of the SciTS Team is to advance our understanding of effective team science approaches, including cross-disciplinary team approaches, by implementing and stimulating original SciTS research and supporting the translation of emerging knowledge into best practices to enhance the conduct, support and evaluation of team science. The team aims to achieve this mission by conducting research and providing support and leadership related to three key goals:
Goal: Studying Team Science
Goal: Facilitating Team Science Collaborations
Goal: Supporting The Development of the SciTS Field
