The rapid development of advances in biomedical research creates levers to improve precision health and health care.  However, without complementary attention to a robust agenda on implementation science, we risk replicating the “bench” to “bookshelf” pathway for scientific discoveries.  This talk will discuss challenges and opportunities, assumptions, and ongoing activities toward advancing implementation science in the context of dynamic systems, an evolving evidence base and a desire to sustain effective and equitable health interventions over time.
