When Susan Everson-Rose, PhD, MPH, had an idea that could help heart attack survivors, she turned to CTSI for support making the jump from concept to pilot study to major grant application.
Several areas across the University, including CTSI, recently came together to provide funding and project support for three University researchers and their microbiome analysis technology—to get it out of the lab and into the marketplace so that it can improve human health.
The Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) and more than 30 research faculty and community judges recognized researchers for outstanding posters and presentations at the annual CTSI Poster Session and Reception held September 20.
Three young researchers in our career development programs share how their CTSI mentors are helping them flourish.
“CTSI’s support of our research has been an important part of our overarching efforts to influence policy decisions, advance the dental therapist profession, and better serve the communities who can benefit the most from these practitioners.”
- Dr. Karl Self, one of the two CTSI-supported University of Minnesota School of Dentistry researchers at the forefront of the emerging dental therapist profession.
What started as a one-off project blossomed into a standing CTSI-HCMC partnership with multiple grants and manuscripts.
HCMC researchers say CTSI’s biostatistical team "transformed" their statistical analysis in a way that helped result in funding, plus biostatisticians are supporting another project that's evaluating a unique Medicaid accountable care organization.
One way CTSI and The Pediatric Device Innovation Consortium (PDIC) have teamed up to advance rare disease research is by supporting the efforts of Dr. Kyriakie Sarafoglou, as she explores better ways to help children with adrenal insufficiency.
Kids with this rare condition lack intrinsic steroid production, so simple childhood illnesses can cause them to get very sick and even become life-threatening.
“The Committee for Pharmaceutical Development infused new life into our treatment idea, and propelled it toward clinical trials. We would not be where we’re at now without its support.”
- U of M Professor Greg Beilman, MD, referring to a treatment that could help people survive severe blood loss
A University of Minnesota research team found that early childhood care and education providers are making significant strides in ensuring kids eat healthy food and are physically active.
Findings are from a follow-up survey to a 2010 study that was jointly funded by CTSI and the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
“Our CTSI-supported research project didn’t just inform public policy; it led directly to the creation of new legislation,” says Dr. Rebecca Shlafer.
Fellow U of M faculty member Dr. Katy Kozhimannil adds, “CTSI support formalized our University-community partnership, which was critical to our ability to make a nationwide impact with our work."
