Community engagement in research
CTSI, in partnership with the University’s Department of Pediatrics and Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, is now accepting applications for its second cycle of the Child Health Collaborative Grant Awards. The groups teamed up in 2014 to create this grant program as part of a broader effort to support research partnerships among community and University child health researchers.
CTSI is now accepting applications for three of its 2016 funding and career development programs.
CTSI’s StudyFinder kiosk, an interactive web-based tool that enables visitors to explore University health studies currently seeking participants, is now located in the lobby of the University of Minnesota Medical Center, East Bank.
On Thursday evening, CTSI honored Rebecca Shlafer, PhD, with the second annual Outstanding Junior Mentor award (shown at right: Laurel Davis, a mentee of Dr. Shlafer, accepts the award on her behalf).
Stories in the Minnesota Daily and KSTP-TV described how researchers from the University of Minnesota and Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota are teaming up to help Somali children and families better manage Type 1 diabetes.
CTSI recently appointed Kola Okuyemi, MD, MPH, as Director of the K to R01 Transition to Independence Program, a two-year career development program that aims to place junior investigators with K awards further on the path to be competitive for R01 awards.
He will also assist in recruiting scholars from diverse backgrounds and promoting diversity-related activities for CTSI as a whole.
Minnesota House Representative Joe Schomacker and several staff members from the Minnesota House of Representatives’ Higher Education and Health and Human Services Committees toured CTSI’s Community Research Van at the University of Minnesota campus last week.
This year’s Minnesota State Fair will feature several CTSI-supported studies and the StudyFinder kiosk -- all in the University of Minnesota’s Driven to Discover Building.
CTSI has announced the annual winners of the 2015 Community Health Collaborative Grants, which support community-University pilot research projects that address important health issues identified by Minnesota communities.
