About Center for Dissemination and Implementation Science (CDIS)

Founded in 2017, the Center for Dissemination and Implementation Science (CDIS), housed in the Department of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago, focuses on the processes that promote or inhibit the adoption of evidence-based and empirically-supported interventions in real-life settings in the US and globally. CDIS scholars examine the facilitators, barriers, and constraints to implementation, potential solutions to these factors, and the feasibility, cost-effectiveness, sustainability, health maintenance, acceptability, equity, and fidelity of interventions and programs. CDIS research seeks to identify and test new and innovative methodologies for diverse and underserved populations.

CDIS integrates theories and principles from diverse fields, including but not limited to behavioral and social sciences, public health, medicine, economics, and public policy, recognizing key components of translational research. Key focus areas of the Center are mental health, adolescent sexual and reproductive health, HIV prevention and treatment, and urban and global health.

The ultimate goal of CDIS is to improve health.

CDIS aims:

  1. To be an international leader in high-impact implementation science research for diverse health problems that disproportionately impact underserved and marginalized populations.
  2. To nimbly and efficiently support research on implementation science topics related to different health problems.
  3. To promote and facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations poised to address cutting-edge implementation research questions using novel methodologies and innovative statistical approaches.
  4. To develop and support a new cadre of US and international implementation science.

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
