The Catalyst Program is a mechanism designed to bring together investigators, stakeholders, and community members across Rutgers and New Jersey, to ignite interdisciplinary and translational research initiatives in alignment with the Institute's mission.

Beginning with the first Catalyst Symposium in Fall 2018 focused on Healthy Aging, followed by symposiums on the New Jersey Population Health Cohort Study in Spring 2019 and Dissemination and Implementation Sciences in Fall 2019, this program has continued to build and sustain collaborations to advance population health sciences.
