Edit resource provides online training modules to enhance skills needed to perform transdisciplinary, team-based translational research. The four learning modules address senior investigators, junior investigators, and institutional development officers It is designed to help learners envision how transdisciplinary collaboration can work and prepare them to overcome the inevitable communication challenges that arise when working in multidisciplinary teams. Module 1 provides an introduction to major concepts and findings in the science of team science and features interview clips with leading experts. Modules 2 through 4 enable learners to work through simulated team science challenges in behavioral, clinical, and basic biomedical science, while adopting different role perspectives. The aim is to allow users to engage virtually in the challenges of team research, while having access to guidance from human experts. The creators encourage visitors to use their extensive resource library and to use our message boards to discuss issues in team science with other researchers.
