New Center in Implementation Science Launched with University of Malaya

Yale University and the University of Malaya (UM) in Kuala Lumpur have been awarded a multi-million dollar grant to establish the Malaysian Implementation Science Training (MIST) center to catalyze research and training through the Fogarty International Program at the National Institutes of Health.

The program, expected to launch this fall, will train the next generation of researchers in implementation science and builds on 15 years of research collaboration between the two universities to address critical issues surrounding HIV, viral hepatitis, tuberculosis and addiction. Implementation science is a relatively new discipline of research that studies methods and strategies that facilitate the uptake of evidence-based practices and research into regular use by practitioners and policymakers.

The new MIST center will be co-directed by Frederick L. Altice, a Yale professor of medicine and public health, and Adeeba Kamarulzaman, dean of the faculty of medicine at UM.
