A primary goal of the Irving Institute is to train and educate a diverse workforce to facilitate agents of change as they translate basic science findings into the improved health care for people over their lifespan. As one of over 50 CTSA hubs working nationally for the same purpose, we utilize our YouTube channel to share research, lectures, and innovations.

Integrating Special Populations (ISP) Seminar Series

Provided by the Integrating Special Populations (ISP) Resource

The Integrating Special Populations (ISP) Resource fosters research collaborations within and across four special populations: pediatrics (infants, children, and young adults), geriatrics (65 years or older), rare diseases (as defined by NIH, a rare disease affects fewer than 200,000 people in the US or one in 1,500), and HIV. The goal is to provide expertise necessary to study diseases across the lifespan, utilize rare diseases as tools to study more common diseases, increase the dissemination of results, and create culturally sensitive engagement, recruitment, and educational tools to facilitate ISP-based research in upper Manhattan.

Implementation Science Seminar Series on Health and Equity

Provided by the Irving Institute Implementation Science Initiative in partnership with the New York State Psychiatric Institute.

These monthly seminars will be held from September 2020 through June 2021, and will feature national experts who lead research focused on health equity, racial justice, and implementation science. As a rapidly growing field, implementation science has developed over the past ten years in response to the well-documented gap between research and practice that exists in real-world community and clinical contexts. This series will focus on the research needed to help advance understanding of how to enhance the uptake, reach, implementation, and impact of evidence-based interventions and practices for populations and settings experiencing health inequities.

Precision Medicine Lecture Series 

Provided by the Precision Medicine Resource (PMR)

PMR seeks to facilitate improved diagnosis and treatment of disease, and ultimately improved maintenance of health through more accurate prediction of disease risk. Precision Medicine offers the opportunity to increase the effectiveness of health care at reduced cost with improved outcomes, decreased adverse effects, and greater patient satisfaction.

Biostatistics for Clinical Researchers

Provided by the Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD)

"Biostatistics in Action: Tips for Clinical Researchers" lecture series is geared towards clinical researchers who are interested in gaining insight into fundamental design and statistical concepts with a focus on practical knowledge. BERD provides a wide range of research design, statistical, analytical, and database management support services.

Implementation Science Lecture Series 

Provided by the Implementation Science Initiative

This video library provides education and training for researchers and practitioners interested in advancing understanding of how to enhance the uptake, reach, implementation, and impact of scientific discoveries. Dissemination and implementation (D&I) research promotes the adoption and integration of proven treatments, programs, and policies into routine use in diverse real-world settings and populations and translates new public health and healthcare knowledge and research for practitioners, healthcare providers, patients, and the general public. A total of 23 brief videos are available that provide an introduction to key foundations in D&I science.

Columbia Community Partnership for Health Lectures

Provided by the Columbia Community Partnership for Health (CCPH)

A bilingual health talk series for the public. This Irving Institute resource offers a unique and inviting, multipurpose space for conducting health research, health promotion activities, and research education and dissemination. CCPH also connects residents of upper Manhattan to health and social services, operates a bilingual health library, and facilitates access to health research.


Provided in partnership with the Irving Institute

The Irving Institute’s mission is to accelerate discoveries, knowledge, and innovation to improve human health across the lifespan for diverse populations in upper Manhattan and around the world. To achieve our mission we collaborate and partner with a diverse range of groups and institutions to help empower our community; these videos show the wide range of outreach that we are involved in.
