Interdisciplinary teams must develop an integrative capacity, a capability sustained through an interactive system linking social, psychological and cognitive processes and emergent states in the team that can provide them with the resources needed to succeed. The Team Science Program augments the translational mission by developing new tools to improve, assess and evaluate the capacity of interdisciplinary and translational science teams to combine team members’ expertise effectively.
