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 Kelly McCormick, MBA, as Regulatory Manager. In this new role, Kelly will oversee CTSI’s regulatory services and provide guidance and oversight on research compliance for the Academic Health Center (AHC).
CTSI recently debuted lower rates and a more flexible rate structure for University of Minnesota investigators using CTSI’s Biorepository & Laboratory Services (BLS) for collecting, processing, and distributing de-identified human specimens.
What started as a one-off project blossomed into a standing CTSI-HCMC partnership with multiple grants and manuscripts.
HCMC researchers say CTSI’s biostatistical team "transformed" their statistical analysis in a way that helped result in funding, plus biostatisticians are supporting another project that's evaluating a unique Medicaid accountable care organization.
CTSI has hired Mahrya Johnson, CCRP, CPT, as the new Clinical Research Manager for the Department of Psychiatry as part of its responsibilities for the department’s clinical research involving human participants.
Cole Drifka, PhD, recently joined CTSI as Biorepository and Laboratory Services (BLS) Manager.
In this role, Dr. Drifka will manage and develop a state-of-the-art integrated biorepository to serve the needs of investigators who require access to human specimens for their research.
CTSI awards $150,000 in pilot funding for two projects that successfully completed Stage 1 of CTSI's Clinical and Translational Research Services (CTRS) Pilot Funding Program. Projects advancing to Stage 2 will work toward the planning and successful implementation of clinical and intervention pilot studies.
Key invoicing change through the CTR Portal ensures timely and quality assurance for billling of research services.
CTSI recently began implementing its new service model for how it supports clinical and translational research studies across the University with the goal of providing enhanced services that better align with researchers’ needs and familiarity with how the clinical research work is performed.
“It became clear that if we shifted away from a department-centric research infrastructure to a team approach that engaged CTSI, we could do a better job initiating, executing, and closing out studies.”
