Initiatives and Committees
The Irving Institute for Clinical and Translational Research oversees several initiatives that are collaborative efforts with partners across Columbia University and our upper Manhattan community.
Implementation Science efforts at the Irving Institute focus on building awareness, providing education, and advancing research, both locally and nationally.
Leveraging CU and NYP resources to optimize our health system’s performance by enhancing the patient experience, improving population health, and improving the work life of health care providers.
The R&R team works with Columbia to provide education to faculty, staff, participants, and the public on the importance of clinical research participation.
Internal to the Irving Institute, we establish long-term committees in response to immediate needs as they emerge in our communities, and across campus. Working with our leadership, faculty and staff we organize and activate projects to effect change.

The mission of the DEI Committee is to advance health equity through program-wide efforts to remove obstacles impacting healthcare, clinical research, and an inclusive healthcare workforce.
Previous Development Projects
Through our initiatives and committees, the Institute harnesses the power of shared resources and partnerships to address ever-evolving needs. The marker of success is when these initiatives grow beyond their initial development phases and mature into stand-alone institutional pillars.
The Irving Institute fostered interdisciplinary collaborations among researchers, industry partners, and the community to implement new strategies around the opioid crisis.
