“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.
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."
“We want to give people who aren’t affiliated with the University a meaningful way to contribute to research, while arming investigators with insights that can benefit their studies.”
Researchers from the University of Minnesota and Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota are collaborating on a study that explores a new approach for connecting food insecure families with food and nutrition resources, thanks to funding from CTSI, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, and the University’s Department of Pediatrics.
CTSI has awarded $200,000 to five health research collaborative partnerships between University of Minnesota investigators and individuals unaffiliated with the University.
“Initial funding from CTSI led to a nearly three-million-dollar NIH grant to advance our research. CTSI’s support enabled us to demonstrate the effectiveness of the treatment we’re investigating, and that further studies on the topic could be feasible, particularly in terms of attracting enough research participants.”

CTSI has released a report that evaluates the Community Health Collaborative Grant award program, which aims to support research projects that lead to health improvements, while sustaining long-term partnerships between University of Minnesota researchers and community representatives.
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.
Nearly $17,000 has been awarded to six faculty investigators through CTSI’s Driven to Discover Community Health and Research Grants Program to conduct health research at this year’s Minnesota State Fair.
