Community engagement in research
CTSI's Office of Community Engagement to Advance Research and Community Health (CEARCH) has awarded funding for three projects through its new funding programs for community members and organizations to develop ideas and partnerships that address health in our communities.
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.
The Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) has hired Annie Hotop, MS, MA, to lead CTSI recruitment activities designed to support University of Minnesota researchers’ efforts to attract study participants and increase awareness of clinical research opportunities among the broader community.
CTSI launches Community Engagement Studios, a new model that enables U of M researchers to gather structured feedback from patients, community members, and other stakeholders to benefit their research studies.
Community members and organizations interested in developing ideas and partnerships to address health in Minnesota communities now have access to two funding programs through CTSI's Community Engagement to Advance Research and Community Health that will award up to $7,000 each quarter.
The Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) and more than 30 research faculty and community judges recognized researchers for outstanding posters and presentations at the annual CTSI Poster Session and Reception held September 20.
“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."
CTSI support enabled Assistant Professor Laura Palombi, PharmD, MPH, and a community task force to hold a CTSI-supported forum on heroin and opioid abuse that successfully rallied a northern Minnesota town.
Dr. Palombi credits CTSI as the "jump-start” that propelled everything forward, including subsequent funding to replicate best practices in other rural communities.
