April 3, 2017

Join Penn State’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute on Tuesday, April 11 for its monthly Bench to Bedside and Beyond (B3) Lecture with Max Crowley, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Human Development and Family Studies in the College of Health and Human Development for a discussion titled “Supporting the Use of Scientific Evidence in Public Policy: Findings for the Research-to-Policy Collaboration.”

This lecture will report on findings from a recent pilot of a translational model for supporting the use of scientific evidence in health and social policy. The Research-to-Policy Collaboration (RPC) Model conducts ongoing assessments of congressional offices need for scientific evidence while training researchers to support legislative staff’s evidence needs. The impact of the model on congressional offices, researchers and federal policymaking will be presented.

The lecture will be held at University Park, 116 Henderson with videoconference to the College of Medicine, C3621.

The Bench to Bedside and Beyond (B3) Lecture is a series of educational discussions covering a variety of topics on the translational science spectrum. The goal of the series is to provide participants with the information and tools necessary to play a vital role in accelerating discoveries that benefit human health.
