Scientific translation describes the process of taking research discoveries from basic laboratory science, clinical practice, and community into interventions for public health benefit. Community engagement is an important element for the translation of research findings. This symposium will address how community-campus partnerships can engage for the successful conduct of health research while upholding diversity and equity.

Our goals are to showcase current projects within different phases of the translational spectrum for possible future collaborations; (2) to identify methods for engaging the community in all phases of research; and (3) to build the capacity of community members and researchers interested in community-campus partnerships.
