The mission of the CEAR Core is to facilitate community-based research and community engagement, and enhance the translation of research and technological developments to key public health and community stakeholders. The CEAR Core is part of the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA), which is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and awarded jointly to the University of Pennsylvania and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

The CEAR Core aims to build capacity for community-engaged research in the Penn community through providing links to relevant information and resources, training and seminars, consultation, and support for pilot research.
