CTSI's tools & resources
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.
Paper forms and physical study binders will soon be replaced by an electronic regulatory binder tool, thanks to the implementation of Florence eBinders at CTSI. The tool gives PIs and study teams an efficient, secure way to electronically sign, manage, store, and collaborate on a study’s regulatory documents.
Research is the path forward in this global pandemic, and CTSI, like organizations around the world, is committed to accelerating these discoveries.
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.
CTSI is helping drive new research and clinical opportunities in ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging (UHF MRI), evidenced by a national conference in November that sought to identify the promise of UHF MRI to address unmet clinical needs and confront what’s needed to fully realize the technology’s potential.
The University of Minnesota’s Clinical Research Support Center (CRSC) co-facilitated a collaborative project aimed at accelerating the research process. The process improvement effort brought together stakeholders from across the University clinical research community and led to the creation of several new ancillary review resources available on the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) website.
CTSI’s BDAC has partnered with the Association for Clinical and Translational Science's Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design Special Interest Group to create the Biostats4You website. The website identifies and reviews biostatistical training tools and resources for medical and public health researchers and professionals who wish to learn more about biostatistics. Learn more about this new biostatistics resource.
CTSI received supplement funding from NIH to host a total of six Science Cafe events and to disseminate results through a digital engagement platform. Learn more about this event series and how to engage with this growing research community.
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.
