CTSI Events

You are here


February 15  | 4-6:00pm; 3:30 pre-event  |  Mississippi Room, Coffman Memorial Union 

Learn how the Clinical and Translational Science Institute is advancing forward, and how CTSI’s funding programs and expert resources can help bring your discoveries into practice. Join us before and after the formal presentation to network with colleagues, find research collaborators, and meet CTSI staff. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.

Clinical and translational research can include many scientific and logistical obstacles. CTSI works to cut through these by providing research support to University researchers – across the entire clinical and translational research spectrum. Learn how CTSI can help advance your research and career at this informal event. 

The event will include networking time to help build out your professional network at the University, an introduction to CTSI's key resources and a look at its future direction, highlights from CTSI's career development programs and scholars, and an opportunity to ask questions. Plus, before the official event even begins, there's an opportunity to learn about a relatively new resource available to you as a University researcher — CTSI's Community Research Van

February 15  | 3-4pm  |  Moos 2-580

Embedding research into the patient experience at the new Clinics and Surgery Center (CSC), scheduled to open in February 2016, is a primary goal of the University's and CTSI plays a key role in leading the implementation. This session will provide information on the information you need to know before the CSC opens. This seminar series is for University researchers, coordinators, project managers, regulatory experts, and others involved in clinical research at the Clinics and Surgery Center and University of Minnesota. 

The session will be live streamed via WebEx and a recording will be made available after the session. 

This seminar for University researchers and clinical research professionals is part of a series of semi-monthly updates on research at the Clinics and Surgery Center.


Friday, Feb. 19  |  9 – 10:30am  |  Center for Changing Lives (2400 Park Avenue S., Minneapolis)

Attend this pre-application workshop to learn more about a grant opportunity that will fund high-impact research projects involving the University and the broader community. 

The Community Health Collaborative Grants program anticipates awarding $25,000-47,500 per project to support health research collaborations between University of Minnesota investigators and individuals or groups from outside the University, such as nonprofits, health care providers, and community advocates. 

The workshop will also address the partner-matching support offered through the program to help community members find University researchers with complementary skills and expertise, as well as connect University researchers to community collaborators.
