Community engagement in research
To mitigate risk of COVID-19, two University of Minnesota (UMN) researchers are analyzing factors such as race, economic stability, living environment, education, and more to get a more comprehensive, holistic picture of health. This will help the healthcare system better respond to underrepresented, under-resourced patients during the COVID-19 crisis.
CTSI’s CEARCH Office has awarded four teams Community Health Collaborative Pilot Grants for 2020. Read more about the grantees and their projects.
Tetyana Shippee, PhD, recipient of a CEARCH Community Health Collaborative award, shared findings of her ongoing research with community and partners at a November presentation. Read more about her work and its impact.
CTSI received supplement funding from NIH to host a total of six Science Cafe events and to disseminate results through a digital engagement platform. Learn more about this event series and how to engage with this growing research community.
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.
