CTSI's tools & resources
Beginning next week, the DeptID for the department administering the research project will be required for all new requests for services submitted in CTSI’s Clinical and Translational Research (CTR) Portal and project set-up requests made to email@example.com.
The DeptID field ultimately identifies a departmental contact who will be informed of the project and may be called on for assistance (e.g., during invoice processing).
The following Academic Health Center (AHC) departments have recently started using OnCore, with support from CTSI's OnCore team: Psychiatry, Medicine (remaining groups), Surgery, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Physical Medical Rehabilitation, Dermatology, Ophthalmology, and Family Medicine.
The University of Minnesota’s health research website, StudyFinder, was recently adopted, customized, and launched by Penn State University, which makes it the first institution outside the University to adopt the tool. In addition, Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) launched its StudyFinder website today for use in that community.
In addition to histology, immunohistochemistry and digital imaging services, CTSI’s Biological Materials Procurement Network (BioNet) tissue procurement facility provides researchers with high-quality tissue procurement services in compliance with best industry practices and current regulations.
Last month CTSI hosted an event for AHC faculty to learn more about CTSI, its vision moving forward and how it can help advance the careers and research of University investigators.
Earlier this year, CTSI submitted an application to renew its Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA). CTSI’s proposal focuses on enhancing the scope, quality, and efficiency of team-based clinical and translational science research, with the ultimate goal of improving human health.
More than 2 million medical records housed in the CTSI-led clinical data repository have been assigned GPS coordinates, giving researchers a more flexible, precise way to study health issues that involve location.
CTSI’s Informatics Consulting Service can fulfill requests for geocoded data at no cost to researchers at the University of Minnesota and Fairview Health Services.
The infrastructure to support clinical research in the new Clinics and Surgery Center, slated to open in late February, is taking shape following substantial work by CTSI throughout 2015 that began with a two-day retreat with the CSC development team to map out the research integration process.
On Monday, Feb. 15, 2016 learn how CTSI is advancing forward, and how its funding programs and expert resources can help bring your discoveries into practice. This informal event is designed to arm University faculty with information on how best to use CTSI to advance their research projects and careers. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.
CTSI’s Informatics Consulting Services (ICS) recently began offering a new self-service tool to University investigators that retrieves unstructured clinical notes from the electronic health record.
