Consortium News

A group of researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) are developing a smartphone app to help parents in under-resourced communities detect severe tooth decay in their kids with the help of a new NIH grant. The idea to leverage smartphones came directly from the community through a Community-Based Participatory Research Pipeline-to-Pilot project funded by the University of

The University of Rochester's eighth annual America’s Got Regulatory Science Talent student competition, hosted by the University of Rochester Clinical and Translational Science Institute, drew the largest number of competing teams in its history. On March 4, 2021, twelve teams faced off for a chance at first prize: to present their novel regulatory science ideas to a panel of scientists from the

Frailty, which is characterized by weakness, fatigue and weight loss, is a common occurrence among patients with cancer and can impact their quality of life and survival. A recent study led by a KL2 Career Development scholar, funded by the University of Rochester Clinical and Translational Science Institute, links frailty to inflammation levels in the blood of women with breast cancer. Women with

Despite the utility and ubiquity of feasibility and pilot studies and their critical role in translational and implementation science, few health scientists are familiar with the growing literature on how to rigorously design and conduct these studies. Drawing on over twenty years of experience in HIV research and as an NIH reviewer, James McMahon, PhD, associate professor in the University of

Interventions that have an impact under tightly controlled conditions frequently fail to demonstrate these same outcomes when transported to community-based settings. What accounts for the gap? One factor is that the program may not be implemented as intended, that is, with fidelity. At this Equity-Focused Dissemination & Implementation webinar, Wendi Cross, PhD, professor of Psychiatry and

Using examples from her community-engaged work on cancer screening, Rachel C. Shelton, ScD, MPH, associate professor of Sociomedical Sciences at Columbia University, will examine opportunities to advance research on health equity and sustainability within the field of implementation science at this Equity-Focused Dissemination & Implementation webinar. Shelton is also associate director of the

Dr. Karen Stein has recently received funding from the Cabrini Foundation for a 12-month pilot type study. The project focuses on the Western New York farmworker population and development of a culturally relevant smart phone delivered health eating intervention geared for persons of varying levels of literacy. For that work, she is seeking a project coordinator at a 20% effort. Summary of the

The University of Rochester is looking for an Information Analyst. GENERAL PURPOSE: With minimum direction and considerable latitude for independent judgment, utilizes project-management methodology and data analysis to support the research project “Empowering the Participant Voice”. This project involves the dissemination of surveys to all research participants that participate in research

The University of Rochester envisions itself as a community that welcomes, encourages, and supports individuals who desire to contribute to and benefit from the institution’s missions of teaching, research, patient care, performance, and community service. As a community, we are defined by a deep commitment to Meliora¬ - ever better. Embedded in that ideal are the values we share: equity

The University of Rochester Clinical and Translational Science Institute (UR-CTSI) led the organization of the UR research response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Never in the last 100 years have so many researchers been affected by, and been involved in studying, a single event that has so deeply impacted our country. The UR-CTSI’s leadership at UR has been particularly critical in two areas: Air

Regulatory Science is defined by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as “the science of developing new tools, standards, and approaches to assess the safety, efficacy, quality and performance of FDA-regulated products” that ultimately enhances the overall translational research process and improves the development of safe and effective medical interventions. Precision medicine holds

MicroRNA-574 regulates FAM210A expression and influences pathological cardiac remodeling

Aberrant expression of mitochondrial proteins impairs cardiac function and causes heart disease. The mechanism of regulation of mitochondria encoded protein expression during cardiac disease, however, remains underexplored. Here, we show that multiple pathogenic cardiac stressors induce the

The longitudinal relationship between immune cell profiles and frailty in patients with breast cancer receiving chemotherapy

Frailty is associated with an increased risk of chemotherapy toxicity. Cellular markers of inflammation can help identify patients with frailty characteristics. However, the role of cellular markers of inflammation in identifying patients at risk of developing chemotherapy-induced frailty and their

Effects of Kainic Acid-Induced Auditory Nerve Damage on Envelope-Following Responses in the Budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus)

Sensorineural hearing loss is a prevalent problem that adversely impacts quality of life by compromising interpersonal communication. While hair cell damage is readily detectable with the clinical audiogram, this traditional diagnostic tool appears inadequate to detect lost afferent connections
