The Translation of Health Research in Kinesiology
Ainsworth, Barbara E.
Quest, v61 n1 p84-92 Feb 2009
The translation of health research is a process of transforming scientific discoveries arising from laboratory, clinical, or population studies into clinical or population-based applications to improve health by reducing disease incidence, morbidity, and mortality. Initiated by the National Institutes for Health Roadmap Initiative and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, translation of research has become a priority for federally funded research programs and centers. In kinesiology, the translation of health research can be accomplished through organized, focused research agendas designed to understand causes and solutions to health challenges from the level of the laboratory bench to the park bench. Multiuniversity research consortiums may facilitate translation of health research in kinesiology, similar to those seen in the medical sciences. (Contains 2 figures.)
