The Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) recently began administering the Committee for Pharmaceutical Development (CPD), an initiative that helps faculty researchers bring therapeutics from basic research into clinical practice via funding and strategic guidance.
U of M and community researchers now have new opportunities to fund their projects, thanks to three Request for Applications from the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI). CTSI anticipates awarding up to $795,000 in total funding to support as many as 21 research projects aimed at improving human health.
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.
Congratulations to the recipients of CTSI's Fall 2012 Translational Grant Awards! This round of awards, designed to facilitate the highest quality translational research, was dedicated to junior investigators at the University of Minnesota.
The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) is announcing an open opportunity to submit proposals to collaborate with the Therapeutics for Rare and Neglected Diseases (TRND) program.
Medical School Assistant Professor Aaron Kelly, PhD, and Jennifer Abuzzahab, MD, Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, received a Community Collaborative Grant from CTSI in 2010 to study the effects of the drug exenatide on extreme pediatric obesity. On Monday, February 4, the encouraging results of that study were published online in JAMA Pediatrics.
Congratulations to David Largaespada, Ph.D., professor in the departments of Genetics, Cell Biology and Development and Pediatrics, for being awarded the prestigious American Cancer Society (ACS) Research Professor Award.
Largaespada, who has used the Sleeping Beauty transposon to identify and better understand cancer genes, is only the second University of Minnesota faculty member to receive the award.
The 2012 Shared University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic CTSA Award (SUMMA) is a new, competitive award program supporting joint projects from the U of M Clinical Translational Science Institute (CTSI) and Mayo Clinic's Center for Translational Science Activities (CTSA).
