CTSI's tools & resources
CTSI launches Community Engagement Studios, a new model that enables U of M researchers to gather structured feedback from patients, community members, and other stakeholders to benefit their research studies.
U of M clinical research professionals can now create their research training Roadmap that prescribes customized curriculum to help them see and track required and optional training for their research work with human participants thanks to a new tool CTSI launched earlier this week.
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.
More OnCore clinical trial management system users can now capture visit-level data, thanks to the availability of electronic case report forms (eCRFs) across the Academic Health Center.
Academic Health Center (AHC) researchers will no longer enter new studies into the Time and Study Collection System (TASCS), thanks to the transition to the OnCore clinical trial management system.
Key invoicing change through the CTR Portal ensures timely and quality assurance for billling of research services.
“We want to give people who aren’t affiliated with the University a meaningful way to contribute to research, while arming investigators with insights that can benefit their studies.”
CTSI has released an updated protocol for any videos, photos, or media interviews occurring in the three clinical research facilities operated by CTSI: the Delaware Clinical Research Unit (DCRU), the Masonic Clinical Research Unit (MCRU), and the Lillehei Clinical Research Unit (LCRU).
“Nearly 70 people contacted us to express interest in one of our studies after seeing it on StudyFinder, through virtually no effort on our end. StudyFinder is the most innovative, efficient tool for recruiting participants I’ve used in my 27-year clinical research career.”
- Patricia Lenton, RDH, MA, CCRP, who directs the Oral Health Research Clinic at the University’s School of Dentistry
CTSI has enhanced the Clinical Translational Research Portal's (CTR Portal) Time Sheet module to create a better experience for the University of Minnesota research teams who use it.
CTSI team members and select service units and departments use Time Sheet to track the effort staff spend on research projects.
