A CTSI-supported study recently published in the scientific journal Cell finds evidence that gut microbiota of populations immigrating from Southeast Asia rapidly Westernize after a person’s arrival to the United States. Several media outlets have reported on the findings, including National Public Radio, The Atlantic, The Scientist Magazine, Star Tribune, and Yahoo! News.
Five new Scholars from diverse disciplines and populations join CTSI's KL2 Scholar Career Development Program, a three-year NIH Institutional Mentored Career Development Award program for University of Minnesota Assistant Professors conducting clinical or translational research.
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.
This program provides funding in two stages to full-time University of Minnesota faculty to prepare and implement prospective clinical pilot studies for focused clinical research questions and the data collected is expected to inform subsequent larger clinical trials.
Know these ten tips when citing National Institutes of Health funding, including through the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences’ Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program.
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.
Four research teams have been awarded up to $50,000 each to pursue health research projects that have the potential to lead to a start-up company or license agreement. If successful, the University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic grantees will be eligible to apply for up to $400,000 in additional funding.
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.
