Team Science as a Strategic Research Priority at Academic Medical Centers
Haley R. Team Science as a Strategic Research Priority at Academic Medical Centers. Oral presentation at 2017 SciTS Conference. Clearwater Beach, FL. Jun 13, 2017. Translational Health Research. Online at: http://www.scienceofteamscience.org/2017-agenda.
Institutional focus on, and investment in, team
science—within academic medical centers (AMCs)
and research-intensive schools of medicine—are
important and increasing. But team science is just
one of many elements within a complex array of
other strategic research enterprise priorities. This
presentation will share a recently-published framework
for thinking about research strategies and priorities
at AMCs, a framework developed from a review of
research strategic plans and the authors’ related
experiences. While highlighting the places where
team science emerges in AMC research strategic plans,
the presentation will help to advance the SciTS field
by providing the audience with a holistic context for
considering other institutional priorities that may
align or compete with team science for organizational
attention and financial resources.
With an eye toward team science, the presentation
will introduce a “research strategy DNA” framework
developed to help leadership and faculty toward a
shared understanding of their current position and
help inform their future strategic priorities. Six common
strategic elements are outlined in the framework: (1)
research faculty, (2) research infrastructure and space,
(3) research organizations, (4) research focus areas, (5)
research teams, and (6) research partnerships. AMC
thinking along these elements is guided by two strands:
(1) pursuit of excellence, and (2) strategic stewardship.
Additional areas of emerging strategic attention (yet
underrepresented in current research strategies) are
also introduced: research business models, translational
organizational structures, and philanthropic agility.
