bctr 2012-13 annual report coverThe 2012-13 BCTR annual report is now available to view online here. BCTR director John Eckenrode gave an overview of center accomplishments in his introductory message:

This was the 2nd year for the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research (BCTR). The center represents an innovative College of Human Ecology (CHE) approach to outreach and extension grounded in a translational research framework. Our work fits directly into the university’s strategic initiative of “strongly connecting research and public engagement with Cornell’s areas of strength in research, scholarship, and education.” Over the next five years we expect the center to become:

  • An incubator for translational research projects in the social and behavioral sciences at Cornell
  • An innovator in the creation of new translational research methods
  • A focal point for CHE extension and outreach activities
  • An engine for major funding of multidisciplinary collaborative efforts
  • A model for involving undergraduate and graduate students in translational research activities
  • A link to other colleges within Cornell and to the Weill Cornell Medical College for joint activities

These goals are being achieved in many ways through the multiple-funded projects housed within the center as well as by center-wide events and projects. Funded projects include (1) research on children, youth, young adults, and the elderly; (2) research on the nature and impact of service provision to vulnerable populations; (3) the development, evaluation and implementation of new programs and interventions; (4) reviews and syntheses of research evidence; (5) training and technical support to service providers and agencies on the implementation of evidence-based programs; and (6) the development of innovative ways to engage with community partners and bring knowledge generated at Cornell to practitioners, policy makers, and the general public.
