Researchers from the University of Minnesota and community are expanding upon work done during the Immigrant Microbiome Project that was partially funded by CTSI in 2015. The project identified changes in gut microbiomes in immigrant Hmong and Karen women living in Minnesota and Thailand to potentially uncover why there is a shift or decline in their health once immigrants are living in the United States.
CTSI is pleased to welcome three new Scholars into its KL2 Scholar Career Development Program, a structured career development program that focuses on multidisciplinary, translational research.
The Community Mentorship Training program, launching this month, engages community partners in the design of clinical trials and studies while training KL2 Scholars to work with communities, a necessary step for more equitable and accessible solutions for human health. Learn more about this new program and the inaugural cohort.
CTSI's community engagement function releases a newsletter to connect partners outside the University to community-engaged research. Learn more about this new resource and sign up for the mailing list.
CTSI-Ed has curated a library of successful grant applications for clinical researchers to refer to during their own application process. Learn more about the library and how to take advantage of this resource.
