The Center for Dissemination & Implementation at the Institute for Public Health has helped launch a new website for the Washington University D&I community. The brand new, Dissemination and Implementation Research website features news and information about D&I-related faculty profiles, projects, and events; implementation research across WashU; video interviews with nationwide and local D&I experts (soon to come); toolkits; and funding and consultation opportunities.
“WashU is really a national leader in D&I and this new website helps convey the breadth and depth of the activities here,” says Elvin Geng, MD and director of the Institute’s Center for Dissemination & Implementation. “Because this is a university-wide site, we want encourage D&I faculty and students to share their work, research news and blogposts on the site.”
Geng and many others are working to enhance and expand university D&I efforts as well as the university’s reputation as a hub for Dissemination and Implementation Science. The Center for Dissemination & Implementation helped fund and facilitate the new site and Geng hopes that the WashU community will visit the site and it will help foster collaboration and connections.
Just some of the faculty currently featured in news stories on the new D&I site are: Michael Avidan, Ana Baumann, Ross Brownson, Graham Colditz, Elvin Geng, Ashley Housten, Eric Lenze, Rupa Patel, Byron Powell, Alex Ramsey, and many others. Geng and fellow D&I scholars encourage others interested in the D&I space to contribute related content to the site (news, research project updates, funding opportunities, etc.) and to use the website as a resource throughout their research and academic careers at Washington University.
