News and Events
CTSI has accepted 9 undergraduate and professional health science students into its summer research training programs.
CTSI has hired Mahrya Johnson, CCRP, CPT, as the new Clinical Research Manager for the Department of Psychiatry as part of its responsibilities for the department’s clinical research involving human participants.
One way CTSI and The Pediatric Device Innovation Consortium (PDIC) have teamed up to advance rare disease research is by supporting the efforts of Dr. Kyriakie Sarafoglou, as she explores better ways to help children with adrenal insufficiency.
Kids with this rare condition lack intrinsic steroid production, so simple childhood illnesses can cause them to get very sick and even become life-threatening.
There’s a new funding opportunity for University of Minnesota researchers developing diagnostics and treatments for rare diseases, thanks to the recent release of an RFA from CTSI’s Translational Grant Program. CTSI anticipates funding up to two projects, with each project receiving as much as $50,000 in direct costs for one year.
Cole Drifka, PhD, recently joined CTSI as Biorepository and Laboratory Services (BLS) Manager.
In this role, Dr. Drifka will manage and develop a state-of-the-art integrated biorepository to serve the needs of investigators who require access to human specimens for their research.
