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.
Last week, research study cards became available for patients and visitors of the University of Minnesota Health Clinics and Surgery Center (CSC)—the newest aspect of the CTSI-led effort to integrate research into clinical care at the CSC—to ultimately increase study participation.
A new prepaid debit card program for research participants recently launched across the University of Minnesota that provides research teams a faster, safer way to pay and reimburse study participants.
Kathy Quandt, MBA, recently became Director of CTSI’s Clinical Trials Financial Services (CTFS) team.
In this role, Kathy will manage and oversee the CTFS team, which provides financial management throughout the life of a trial, from pre-award budgeting and contract negotiation to post-award oversight, invoicing, and reporting.
CTSI has hired Mahrya Johnson, CCRP, CPT, as the new Clinical Research Manager for the Department of Psychiatry as part of its responsibilities for the department’s clinical research involving human participants.
CTSI has released an updated protocol for any videos, photos, or media interviews occurring in the three clinical research facilities operated by CTSI: the Delaware Clinical Research Unit (DCRU), the Masonic Clinical Research Unit (MCRU), and the Lillehei Clinical Research Unit (LCRU).
“Nearly 70 people contacted us to express interest in one of our studies after seeing it on StudyFinder, through virtually no effort on our end. StudyFinder is the most innovative, efficient tool for recruiting participants I’ve used in my 27-year clinical research career.”

The following Academic Health Center (AHC) departments have recently started using OnCore, with support from CTSI's OnCore team: Psychiatry, Medicine (remaining groups), Surgery, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Physical Medical Rehabilitation, Dermatology, Ophthalmology, and Family Medicine.
CTSI recently began implementing its new service model for how it supports clinical and translational research studies across the University with the goal of providing enhanced services that better align with researchers’ needs and familiarity with how the clinical research work is performed.
