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.
CTSI is helping drive new research and clinical opportunities in ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging (UHF MRI), evidenced by a national conference in November that sought to identify the promise of UHF MRI to address unmet clinical needs and confront what’s needed to fully realize the technology’s potential.
The University of Minnesota’s Clinical Research Support Center (CRSC) co-facilitated a collaborative project aimed at accelerating the research process. The process improvement effort brought together stakeholders from across the University clinical research community and led to the creation of several new ancillary review resources available on the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) website.
IT and CTMS Director Josh Fehrmann is excited to start serving in his new role while expanding and maintaining strong IT partnerships with CTSI experts to continue the tradition of delivering IT solutions and innovations.
