Since its inception in 2013, the goal of the Implementation & Improvement Science Lab has been to expand the capacity of faculty and staff in the development, conduct, and dissemination of implementation and partnered science.   We work closely with our Veterans through VetREP (Veteran Research Engagement Panel) to improve the implementation and translation of research to community settings.
