Duke CTSI announces the publication of a new case study, "Biopsychosocial Determinants of Pain in Sickle Cell Disease," a research study led by Dr. Mitchell Knisely of the Duke University School of Nursing. 

This case study discusses not only the methods and results of the research, but explores the challenges the researchers faced and the strategies they employed to overcome those challenges. It also clearly demonstrates the benefits to patients and society of this translational science project. 

Here is the Knisely Case Study using the Translational Science Benefits Model.
