Many children who undergo tracheostomy placement, a surgical placement of breathing tubes for upper airways, endure repeated bacterial respiratory tract infections. These infections lead to frequent hospitalizations. Unfortunately, clinicians have lacked evidence-based guidelines for diagnosing and treating these infections with antibiotics. Now Christopher Russell, MD, MS, a former SC Clinical

We sat down (virtually!) with Dr. Nhu Tran, a recipient of the SC CTSI Mentored Career Development in Clinical and Translational Science award. We hear about her new K23 grant from the National Institute of Nursing Research, within the National Institutes of Health, and what she hopes to learn. Congratulations to Dr. Tran on this great accomplishment! 1. In layperson’s terms, tell us a little

- To accelerate translation, researchers need access to a broad range of data from a variety of sources (electronic health records, imaging, genetics, behavioral, etc.). These sources manage and store data differently, which creates the need for standardization. The Informatics Common Metric, which is in its second year, addresses the need to harmonize data across the CTSA Program. This will enhance

- February 02, 2021When the pandemic hit, clinical researchers jumped into action, starting up trials of COVID vaccines and treatments in record time. Without experienced and knowledgeable clinical research coordinators to run those trials, South Carolinians would not have had early access to these cutting-edge tools for fighting the virus. Those research professionals were at the ready, thanks to an initiative

However, access to high quality study monitoring is often lacking in investigator-initiated trials conducted in academic medical centers. Indeed, two separate surveys of research professionals in Southern California revealed that only about 65% reported monitoring in their investigator-initiated
- Now entering its 16th consecutive year, the CTSC continues to serve biomedical research projects by providing services and resources to investigators, staff, scholars and trainees, and community partners. As an honest and resourceful broker, the CTSC partners with UC Davis schools and colleges engaged in life science and translational research to support collaborative projects with the potential to improve health care. The CTSC provides centralized resources dedicated to facilitating biomedical research through innovation, collaboration, and expertise. As an extension of our national consortium, the CTSC is charged with advancing human health through:
1) Training and cultivating the translational science workforce
2) Engaging patients and communities in every phase of the translational process
3) Promoting the integration of special and underserved populations in translational research across the human lifespan
4) Innovating processes to increase the quality and efficiency of translational research, particularly of multisite trials
5) Advancing the use of cutting-edge informatics
Through its various programs and resources, the UC Davis CTSC provides the essential infrastructure for building research teams of the future to improve human health.
