TRI & me

“While implementation research has been a focus of mine for more than 15 years, until recently this realm of study hasn’t received a lot of attention. Thanks to support from the Translational Research Institute, more UAMS researchers are developing and testing implementation strategies in real-world settings. I was thrilled that TRI chose implementation science as the focus for its recent Pilot Awards, and I am equally enthusiastic about the caliber of awardees and their projects. TRI is helping UAMS find new approaches to some of research’s most vexing challenges, and I am proud to play a role to work with both researchers and the community, allowing me to meet and provide services to a wide variety of people. It is immensely gratifying to make new friends almost every day, thanks to my position at TRI.”
