Welcome from the Directors

Launched in 2017, with funding from National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, MCCISS trains future leaders in cardiopulmonary implementation science.

Our goal is to provide foundational knowledge, skills, and experience for scientists committed to reducing the burden of cardiopulmonary diseases. Scholars pursue implementation research in prevention, management and/or treatment of heart, lung, blood and sleep diseases.  

MCCISS blends mentored research and didactics in implementation science addressing health promotion and clinical treatment. Following program completion, MCCIS scholars will be equipped with the diverse skills necessary to identify and evaluate new and effective ways to integrate scientific evidence into practice.

Implementation Science

Implementation science, an emerging discipline in the health sciences, studies the best ways to incorporate evidence-based practice into routine clinical and public health practice. 

Implementation science requires:

  • Unique and diverse set of methodologies and skill sets
  • Interdisciplinary team science approaches
  • Collaboration with practice settings and organizations that aim to adopt evidence-based approaches.

 A critical component for the future of implementation science is a well-trained scientific workforce.

The Massachusetts Consortium for Cardiopulmonary Implementation Science Scholars is supported by the National Heart, Lung, And Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number K12HL138049.
