Behavioral Science and Technology Core (BSTC)




    The primary mission of the BSTC is to provide consultative services and technical support to high-quality translational intervention research that targets diabetes-related health behaviors, using scientifically rigorous methods that are informed by multi-stakeholder input and collaboration. Ongoing BSTC research covers the spectrum of diabetes translation, including effectiveness trials, patient-centered outcomes research, community-based participatory research (CBPR), comparative effectiveness research (CER), and implementation and dissemination research. The BSTC brings together a rich set of resources to support translational investigators working to overcome barriers to widespread dissemination and implementation of evidence-based strategies that target clinical management and/or behavior and lifestyle change to reduce diabetes health disparities in real world health care and community settings.



    The TIMC consultation services structured to help investigators:

    1. Refining hypotheses about mechanisms and moderators of intervention effects and guide evaluation plans 
    2. Evaluating community-based participatory research and stakeholder engagement methods 
    3. Selecting appropriate technologies, incorporating them into tailored interventions 
    4. Facilitating application of rigorous evaluation methods
