Prevention and Translation Research Initiative
In 2008, CDC's Office of Public Health Genomics began developing the Prevention and Translation Research Initiative to advance knowledge about the validity, utility, utilization and population health impact of genomic applications and family history for improving health and preventing disease in well-defined populations or practice settings. The objective is to address key questions along the translation continuum: T1 Research - From Gene Discovery to Health Application; T2 Research - From Health Application to Evidence-based Guideline; T3 Research - From Guideline to Health Practice; T4 Research - From Practice to Health Impact.
Genomics Translation Research and Programs
In 2008, CDC's Office of Public Health Genomics (OPHG) awarded five new funding projects to state health departments and academic and research institutions on translation of human-genome information and applications into education, surveillance, and policy interventions.
