The mission of the Implementation Science Affinity Group is to engage and support investigators in the area of dissemination and implementation research. Our goal is to translate evidence-based, clinical and health promotion strategies into real world settings.
- National Cancer Institute Implementation Science
Division of Cancer Control & Population Sciences has an Implementation Science Team that engages in a variety of activities to advance research and practice in implementation science. The vision and mission of the team is to, “achieve the rapid integration of scientific evidence, practice and policy, with the ultimate goal of improving the effect of research on cancer outcomes and promoting health across individual, organizational and community levels.”
- NC TraCS Institute Implementation Science Exchange
Hosts an Implementation Science Exchange that provides resources to support implementation science research projects. Resources include websites, guides, toolkits and sample grant applications. The portal is particularly geared toward those new to implementation science related research.
- Society for Implementation Research Collaboration
The Society for Implementation Research Collaboration (SIRC) aims to facilitate collaboration between implementation research teams. The SIRC hosts a biennial conference on implementation science and shares publications, presentations and methods via their website.

- The modules can be viewed together as a whole or individually by section. In the facilitated course, trainees move through the online modules after establishing a D&I research project idea. Each module consists of viewing videos, completing readings, and responding to assignment questions to build up their project idea. Trainees then workshop their proposed projects by incorporating knowledge gained from each of the online sections.
