University of Minnesota
A University of Minnesota feasibility review support service recently received special recognition from the Society of Clinical Research Associates (SOCRA). This free service helps UMN researchers enhance their protocols and get studies started quickly.
University of Minnesota researchers can now access high-quality COVID-19 patient data for their research, thanks to CTSI’s new COVID-19 Registry. The registry houses the de-identified electronic medical records of patients who have the virus as well as those with related conditions and symptoms.
Katy Backes Kozhimannil, PhD, will lead a new aligned rural health initiative for CTSI and the Office of Academic Clinical Affairs (OACA). Carrie Henning-Smith, PhD, will also join CTSI’s Office of Rural Health as Deputy Director.
Minnesota rural health researchers have a new framework for evaluating and selecting technology, thanks to a guide from CTSI. The framework outlines a step-by-step approach and provides links to local and national tools, funding opportunities, and data sources.
CTSI is pleased to announce the appointment of Steve Johnson, PhD, as Scientific Director, CTSI Clinical Informatics Services and Collaborative Science and Gretchen Sieger as Director of Operations, Clinical Informatics Services.
Shortly after healthcare system M Health Fairview converted Bethesda into a COVID-19 hospital, they teamed up with CTSI. Together, the partners built a robust infrastructure for COVID-19 research, pursuing innovative ways to engage Bethesda patients in the research process and optimize the way studies are conducted.
The Biorepository and Laboratory Services (BLS) sunrise plan has been approved and the group has resumed some operations.
Glenn Simmons Jr., PhD, is co-leading an effort to test wastewater across Minnesota. This would help scientists and public health officials see how prevalent the virus is in a given community and understand where the virus is spiking or trending downward.
Research is the path forward in this global pandemic, and CTSI, like organizations around the world, is committed to accelerating these discoveries.
IRB-approved COVID-19 studies can now get study participants’ consent using electronic signature, thanks to a recent effort to validate REDCap’s electronic consent (eConsent) capabilities for FDA compliance purposes.
