  • Abstract: The proposed sub-award will support work by Bridging the Gap to inform and contribute to the development of research translation training programs at American University. Bridging the Gap has extensive experience conducting programs that train PhD students and faculty in the development of policy-relevant research questions, the dissemination of research findings to audiences outside academia, the establishment of links with policy practitioners and the pursuit of professional opportunities outside academia.
