Through a targeted funding opportunity, the CTSI’s Office of Discovery and Translation has selected four UMN projects to receive funding and guidance. Congratulations to the awardees!
Researchers from the University of Minnesota and community are expanding upon work done during the Immigrant Microbiome Project that was partially funded by CTSI in 2015. The project identified changes in gut microbiomes in immigrant Hmong and Karen women living in Minnesota and Thailand to potentially uncover why there is a shift or decline in their health once immigrants are living in the United States.
The Clinical Research Support Center is celebrating many achievements since opening its doors in September and remains steadfast on its focus to identify the appropriate experts and functional groups to support researchers and study teams as they navigate and advance projects through the clinical research process.
Researchers from the University of Minnesota and Children’s Minnesota are collaborating on a study that explores the effects of racism and discrimination on children’s health and development, thanks to funding from CTSI, Children’s Minnesota, and the University’s Department of Pediatrics.
A CTSI team and supported resource, made possible through CTSI's Clinical and Translational Science Award, is contributing to the Minnesota Cancer Clinical Trials Network (MNCCTN) that aims to expand access to cancer clinical trials for all Minnesotans.
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.
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.
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.
“Initial funding from CTSI led to a nearly three-million-dollar NIH grant to advance our research. CTSI’s support enabled us to demonstrate the effectiveness of the treatment we’re investigating, and that further studies on the topic could be feasible, particularly in terms of attracting enough research participants.”
- Dr. Aaron Kelly discussing his research with Children’s Hospital collaborator Dr. Jennifer Abuzzahab, to advance research that has revealed a promising way to help adolescents with severe obesity
“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.”
- Dr. Maria Hordinsky, Professor and Chair of the Department of Dermatology. The department has a contract with CTSI that gives them ongoing access to a dedicated clinical research professional.
