Operating from a Team Science approach, the Center for the Developing Adolescent serves as a nexus for the exchange of ideas for several overlapping and interrelated teams and research networks. In some of our partnerships, we have extensive overlap in mission, vision, activities, and key personnel while in other partnerships the primary mission and activities are relatively distinct, but with one or more important areas of shared goals. Our central aim across this range of collaborative partnerships is to help integrate understanding across multiple disciplines and approaches, and to promote mutually-informative communication between and among teams and across research projects. Our long-term goal is to advance understanding that leads to improving research, practice, and policy related to adolescent development.
