Community engagement in research
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 Community Mentorship Training program, launching this month, engages community partners in the design of clinical trials and studies while training KL2 Scholars to work with communities, a necessary step for more equitable and accessible solutions for human health. Learn more about this new program and the inaugural cohort.
CTSI's community engagement function releases a newsletter to connect partners outside the University to community-engaged research. Learn more about this new resource and sign up for the mailing list.
CTSI joins the world-wide celebration May 20 to recognize Clinical Trials Day to honor those who are at the forefront of conducting and raising awareness of clinical trials across the health sciences and throughout the University of Minnesota to improve health.
Nearly 80 technology innovators, clinicians, investors, academics and members of the medical device industry gathered in April to better understand academic-industry relationship barriers and catalysts for innovation during the fifth annual Pediatric Device Breakthrough Collaborative event.
CTSI has awarded nearly $200,000 in pilot funds to four 18-month collaborative partnerships between University of Minnesota investigators and community organizations to address important health issues identified by Minnesota communities and stimulate high-impact research.
A CTSI-supported study recently published in the scientific journal Cell finds evidence that gut microbiota of populations immigrating from Southeast Asia rapidly Westernize after a person’s arrival to the United States. Several media outlets have reported on the findings, including National Public Radio, The Atlantic, The Scientist Magazine, Star Tribune, and Yahoo! News.
Letters of Intent for CTSI's Child Health Collaborative Grant Program are now being accepted through November 12. The program is a joint effort between CTSI, the U of M's Department of Pediatrics and Children's Minnesota and supports a collaborative project that addresses an important and unmet child health issue within Minnesota communities.
CTSI recently awarded nearly $10,000 to six Scholars and two community-engaged research teams for outstanding posters and presentations at its annual Poster Session.
Letters of Interest are now being accepted for a CTSI pilot award program that supports community-university research projects that address important health issues identified by Minnesota communities.
