CTSI's tools & resources
“The research I’m doing would not be possible in the age of paper medical charts, and would not be possible without the clinical data from CTSI."
- Gyorgy Simon, PhD, an affiliate faculty member on how CTSI-supplied clinical data is opening up entirely new pathways for discovery.
The University of Minnesota, in partnership with Fairview Health Services, has strengthened the integration between the OnCore clinical trial management system (CTMS) and Epic, Fairview’s electronic health record.
The Clinics and Surgery Center “Discovery Experience” includes creating patient awareness about research opportunities at the University through monitors with research messaging and StudyFinder kiosks stationed throughout the building, and includes embedding research into the entire patient experience and workflows, with the ultimate goal of increasing study participation and the number of clinical trials.
A University of Minnesota research team recently published the results of a clinical trial that showed choline could reduce some of the cognitive defects caused by prenatal alcohol exposure.
Children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) who took a daily supplement of the water soluble nutrient showed small gains in memory performance, which could significantly impact their overall cognitive development.
CTSI’s StudyFinder kiosk, an interactive web-based tool that enables visitors to explore University health studies currently seeking participants, is now located in the lobby of the University of Minnesota Medical Center, East Bank.
Minnesota House Representative Joe Schomacker and several staff members from the Minnesota House of Representatives’ Higher Education and Health and Human Services Committees toured CTSI’s Community Research Van at the University of Minnesota campus last week.
Thanks to CTSI’s Community Research Van, research teams have a new opportunity to conduct health studies out in the community at no cost to them. The mobile health lab is available by request to qualifying studies, and can be taken anywhere in the five-state area.
CTSI has made it easier for research teams to access and use the Clinical Translational Research Portal's (CTR Portal) scheduling system by adding new capabilities.
Investigators and research teams now have an easier, more intuitive way to request services, thanks to an updated module on the Clinical Translational Research Portal (CTR Portal).
The Clinical and Translational Science Institute will implement a new, simpler rate structure for investigators using CTSI's clinical research facilities and support staff, effective Jan. 1, 2015. Rather than paying for each procedure, research teams will pay a simple, hourly rate in 15-minute increments.
