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.
Thanks to CTSI’s Community Research Van, research teams have a new opportunity to conduct health studies out in the community at no cost to them. The mobile health lab is available by request to qualifying studies, and can be taken anywhere in the five-state area.
“Sharing my research with our nation’s policy-makers was a thrilling opportunity, and one that I couldn’t imagine having before I got involved with the Undergraduate Research Program.”

Eight research collaborations between University researchers and Minnesota-based community organizations will receive funding through CTSI’s Dissemination and Implementation Awards program.
Three Minnesotans -- including two with CTSI connections -- were among the 47 new projects funded through the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute's (PCORI) Pipeline to Proposal Awards program. The program awards funding to build partnerships among patients, other healthcare stakeholders, and researchers who share interest in a particular health issue and a desire to participate in patient-centered outcomes research.
