CTSI's tools & resources
Through CTSI’s Best Practices Integrated Informatics Core, researchers now have access to IBM MarketScan® data, which can be used as reference material and to support research findings for health-related studies. This project was a collaborative venture with College of Pharmacy, School of Public Health, Medical School, and Carlson School of Management, with additional funding support from the Office of Academic and Clinical Affairs.
CTSI is now accepting applications for its Community Health Collaborative Pilot Grants program, which matches University investigators with community partners to address important health issues identified by Minnesota communities. Learn more about how to apply.
CTSI's Study Budget Tool, designed for Fairview and M Physicians researchers and study team members who are interested in estimating the costs of study visits, is now available for use.
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.
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.
The Clinical Research Support Center's Feasibility Review provides integral support for researchers developing clinical studies. Hear from PIs the Review has benefitted, and find out how to take advantage of this free service.
A new online biostatistics module, “A SMART Way to Develop Adaptive Intervention Strategies,” is now available for clinical research professionals, biostatisticians, and other faculty who wish to learn about the experimental research design called Sequential Multiple Assignment Randomized Trial (SMART).
CTSI joins the world-wide celebration May 20 to recognize Clinical Trials Day to honor those who are at the forefront of conducting and raising awareness of clinical trials across the health sciences and throughout the University of Minnesota to improve health.
