“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.
One way CTSI and The Pediatric Device Innovation Consortium (PDIC) have teamed up to advance rare disease research is by supporting the efforts of Dr. Kyriakie Sarafoglou, as she explores better ways to help children with adrenal insufficiency.
Kids with this rare condition lack intrinsic steroid production, so simple childhood illnesses can cause them to get very sick and even become life-threatening.
There’s a new funding opportunity for University of Minnesota researchers developing diagnostics and treatments for rare diseases, thanks to the recent release of an RFA from CTSI’s Translational Grant Program. CTSI anticipates funding up to two projects, with each project receiving as much as $50,000 in direct costs for one year.
CTSI has released a new RFA for the Translational Product Development Fund, which supports projects that have the potential to be commercialized, such as projects that may lead to the formation of a start-up company or execution of a license agreement with an established commercial entity.
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.
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.
University of Minnesota biomedical engineers showed artificial blood vessels implanted in young lambs could grow within the new owner, potentially preventing the need for repeated surgeries in children with congenital heart defects.
CTSI is excited to announce the 2016 Translational Grant Program awardees whose early-stage translational projects will work toward developing a new therapeutic, diagnostic, medical device, or treatment approach.
CTSI's Pediatric Device Development Award Program, which supports the development of pediatric medica devices to improve pediatric outcomes and quality of life, is expanding to now accepting applications continuously throughout the year.
Researchers from the University of Minnesota and Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota are collaborating on a study that explores a new approach for connecting food insecure families with food and nutrition resources, thanks to funding from CTSI, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, and the University’s Department of Pediatrics.
