Electronic health records are painting a detailed picture of COVID-19 testing, infections, and hospitalizations. This statewide effort—which includes CTSI and several healthcare providers—could help identify disparities and inform interventions to improve outcomes for all Minnesotans.
CTSI’s Research Education, Training, and Career Development Core recognized Jayne Fulkerson, PhD, and Glen Simmons, Jr., as Mentors of the Year during the annual 2020 Poster Session.
Accelerating research has become more important than ever in the face of a global pandemic. By creating a model that meets the need for speed, the Clinical Research Support Center (CRSC) can hasten the development of therapeutics—not just for one candidate, but for COVID-19 treatments being developed across UMN.
The 2020 Child Health Collaborative award provides support for research addressing the impact of COVID-19 on child health in Minnesota.
Shortly after healthcare system M Health Fairview converted Bethesda into a COVID-19 hospital, they teamed up with CTSI. Together, the partners built a robust infrastructure for COVID-19 research, pursuing innovative ways to engage Bethesda patients in the research process and optimize the way studies are conducted.
To mitigate risk of COVID-19, two University of Minnesota (UMN) researchers are analyzing factors such as race, economic stability, living environment, education, and more to get a more comprehensive, holistic picture of health. This will help the healthcare system better respond to underrepresented, under-resourced patients during the COVID-19 crisis.
Glenn Simmons Jr., PhD, is co-leading an effort to test wastewater across Minnesota. This would help scientists and public health officials see how prevalent the virus is in a given community and understand where the virus is spiking or trending downward.
Research is the path forward in this global pandemic, and CTSI, like organizations around the world, is committed to accelerating these discoveries.
In February, community members and U of M researchers gathered to celebrate community-engaged research at the annual Power of Partnerships poster session and dinner.
IRB-approved COVID-19 studies can now get study participants’ consent using electronic signature, thanks to a recent effort to validate REDCap’s electronic consent (eConsent) capabilities for FDA compliance purposes.
