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.
CTSI is pleased to welcome three new Scholars into its KL2 Scholar Career Development Program, a structured career development program that focuses on multidisciplinary, translational research.
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.
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.
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.
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's Research Education, Training, and Career Development team completed its three-year stint hosting the mock study section for pre- and post -doctoral students and junior faculty Scholars at the national Association for Clinical and Translational Science Conference.
Earlier this year, CTSI hosted a brief visit by six Russian scientists and senior health administrators through the Russian Sister Cities Build Healthier Communities 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
