Our programs constitute of social science research on: 1. Organizational Mechanisms on Translational Science 2. Social Science Frameworks on Management and Distributive Justice 3. Cancer/science Policy Frameworks
1. Research on Organizational Mechanisms on Translational Science
Translational science is a process of applying discoveries and preclinical studies to human studies. Ultimate goals are to improve the patients' care, population health, and regulatory policies. For these purposes, all stages of the spectrum are built upon and inform the others ( See, https://ncats.nih.gov/translation/spectrum). We analyze managerial, governance, and social science mechanisms that will realize the sound translation of discoveries. This program seeks empirical evidence and normative frameworks that are transferrable to other fields of academic sciences.
2. Research on Frameworks of Management, Governance, and Justice
There are systemic issues that prevent all the people with molecular mutation diseases from receiving adequate cares promptly (See, Pereira et al. 1997; Institute of Medicine 2011; 2014, among others).
This research program will identify factors and mechanisms that prevent the diffusion of innovation. For this purpose, it will incorporate dimensions of governance and ethics to theories of management.
3. Research on Cancer/ Science Policy Frameworks
The third program is to contribute to cancer/ science policy frameworks and seek pathways that they define subsequent innovation outcomes. For this purpose, it will map actual patterns and desired policy outcomes by basing on appropriate theories and methodologies.
