What is this offering?

Patients, the ultimate stakeholders in clinical and translational research have not always had a seat at the table in research studies. MICHR aims to advance the integration of patient partners into study teams and research leadership with the goal of accelerating innovation and translational science, increasing the relevance of research findings, and improving health outcomes and patient empowerment. Patient Partners consultations offer advice on patient engagement methods and share patient partner training opportunities and best practices to enhance patient leadership in translational science.

How this advances translational science

Involving impacted patients as research collaborators to enable research advances across the translational continuum.
