“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.
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.
CTSI biostatisticians will be available for walk-in consultations, thanks to new, regular office hours from CTSI’s Biostatistical Design and Analysis Center. Office hour visits are available at no cost to researchers; no appointment necessary.
At the CTSI Poster Session on Jan. 20, CTSI honored University of Minnesota Associate Professor Lynn Eberly, MS, PhD, with the first CTSI Biostatistician Mentor of the Year Award, which recognizes outstanding biostatistical mentors.
Mentees praised Dr. Eberly for her keen intellect, dedication, patience, thoughtfulness, and ability to help her mentees become successful independent researchers.
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 is accepting nominations for its Biostatistician Mentor Awards until Thursday, Nov. 12.
Meet CTSI database programmer and analyst Sue Lowry, whose expertise and experience make her a critical member of research teams at UMN. As one client stated, "Sue's responsiveness and effective problem solution are outstanding - far in excess of expectation."
