University of Minnesota clinical researchers and study teams can now query nearly 40 million patient records through the Accrual to Clinical Trials (ACT) Network for discovery, exploration, and validation of patient cohorts for investigator-initiated multi-site or single-site clinical trials. CTSI is the first Clinical Translational Science Award hub site—of nearly 60 across the U.S.— to implement the Accrual to Clinical Trials (ACT) Network campuswide.
CTSI received more than $42.6 million over five years in renewed National Institutes of Health funding through the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program, which aims to accelerate the application of clinical and translational research discoveries to help people live healthier, longer lives
A third United States research institution recently customized, adapted, and implemented StudyFinder, a CTSI-created tool that gives the public an easier way to find and connect with university research opportunities and study teams to ultimately help develop treatments that may one day benefit others.
Department of Pediatrics Assistant Professor Andrew Barnes, MD, MPH, will represent the University of Minnesota’s CTSI as part of the Child Health Research Acceleration thru Multi-site Planning (CHAMP) program, an effort within the Clinical and Translational Science Award network.
The University of Minnesota’s health research website, StudyFinder, was recently adopted, customized, and launched by Penn State University, which makes it the first institution outside the University to adopt the tool. In addition, Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) launched its StudyFinder website today for use in that community.
Last month CTSI hosted an event for AHC faculty to learn more about CTSI, its vision moving forward and how it can help advance the careers and research of University investigators.
Earlier this year, CTSI submitted an application to renew its Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA). CTSI’s proposal focuses on enhancing the scope, quality, and efficiency of team-based clinical and translational science research, with the ultimate goal of improving human health.
On Monday, Feb. 15, 2016 learn how CTSI is advancing forward, and how its funding programs and expert resources can help bring your discoveries into practice. This informal event is designed to arm University faculty with information on how best to use CTSI to advance their research projects and careers. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.
Earlier this fall, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced its proposed revisions to the regulations that protect individuals who participate in research, what is generally referred to as the Common Rule. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) public comment period opened September 8 and closes December 7.
The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) recently approved $93.5 million to support clinical research data networks that together will form an ambitious new resource known as PCORnet, the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network. One of the 29 data networks supported by the grant is the Greater Plains Collaborative (GPC), which includes the University of Minnesota's Academic Health Center.
