Team Science supports research teams to become more efficient and effective by helping teams build stronger relationships and acquiring team strategies and tools.  We do this by providing a number of educational, training, and consultation services to develop and improve team science competencies for teams and individuals. Teams may elect to utilize one or more of our services to improve team coordination, engagement, and effectiveness.  Our training services include:

    • Annual Team Science Workshop
    • Facilitation services for teams or centers (i.e., retreats, strategic meetings)
    • Consulting services including resources/tools to promote effective teamwork
    • Online training offerings via the ITHS Career Development Series
    • Executive coaching
    • Lean project management training

The Team Science Workshop is a free, interactive multi-day workshop intended for interdisciplinary research teams working on a translational research project/study or a research center. Teams learn the theory and practice of team science. Training content is tailored each year toward addressing and solving specific challenges that attending teams are facing.

Our next Team Science Workshop is tentatively scheduled for Autumn 2024. This workshop will be held online. If your team is interested in pre-registering or you would like more information, contact Laurel Barchet at
