CTSI’s Best Practices Integrated Informatics Core (BPIC) team, which is a part of BMIP, welcomes three new data analysts who will be fully dedicated to serving the clinical data needs of researchers, clinicians and leaders within their assigned areas.
Researchers from the University of Minnesota and community are expanding upon work done during the Immigrant Microbiome Project that was partially funded by CTSI in 2015. The project identified changes in gut microbiomes in immigrant Hmong and Karen women living in Minnesota and Thailand to potentially uncover why there is a shift or decline in their health once immigrants are living in the United States.
The Clinical Research Support Center is celebrating many achievements since opening its doors in September and remains steadfast on its focus to identify the appropriate experts and functional groups to support researchers and study teams as they navigate and advance projects through the clinical research process.
More than 100 visitors attended the Clinical Research Support Center Open House earlier this month to help celebrate the new center’s grand opening, network with colleagues, and learn about the support and resources available to U of M clinical researchers and study teams.
“When we’ve partnered with CTSI to create a recruitment mailing list, we have had cases where our phones ring non-stop with callers interested in joining our study. One of our studies even doubled enrollment, virtually overnight.”
- Rebecca Brown, MSN, MS, RN, a clinical research coordinator with the School of Nursing
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.
“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.
Researchers now have a simpler, more effective way to access data from Minnesota death certificate records, with the launch of a new database from the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI). CTSI will fulfill requests for death certificate record data at no charge to researchers, registries, and transplant databases at the University of Minnesota and Fairview.
