What Is the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS)?

The CCTS is the home for clinical and translational science in our institutions, the state of Utah, and within the Mountain West Region. It builds on our strengths in genetics and bioinformatics to translate promising bench science into practices that improve human health.

The center serves as an academic home for clinical and translational research, developing innovative health services for the community and health researchers, and training a new generation of clinical and translational investigators. Four foundations of discovery compose the center: Clinical Trials Support, Population Health, Precision Medicine, and Workforce Development, and these foundations provide support for T1 to T4 research.

 

DESIGN LAB OPPORTUNITY - CALL FOR BRIEF PROPOSALS

Submission Deadline: January 30, 2020
Design Lab: June 29-30th, 2020


The JHU-Tufts Trial Innovation Center is inviting investigators who are interested in pursuing innovative clinical trial designs to participate in its annual Innovations in Clinical Effectiveness Study Design Lab. These two one-day sessions bring stakeholders together in a collaborative, confidential, case-based workshop to focus on innovations in clinical effectiveness trial design. This is done in the service of getting a new treatment, or a new purpose for an extant treatment, to the marketplace. Design Lab attendees include the presenting investigator team, as well as participants from regulatory agencies, industry, payers, patient representatives, clinicians, and other academics.

The Clinical Effectiveness Study Design Lab is focused on building clinical trial designs and development pathways that have the best chance of bringing treatments into optimal use and therefore having a positive impact on health. This is a great opportunity for investigators who are considering integrating efficacy and effectiveness in a single trial or approaching effectiveness data collection in an innovative way.

Register for upcoming Open Forum on January 16th for more Design Lab details. 

 

HEAL PAIN eRN - NOTICE OF INTENT

FOA Estimated Publication: January 20, 2020
Submission Deadline: March 24, 2020

The purpose of this Notice is to inform potential applicants that the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) intends to publish a re-issuance of funding opportunity announcement RFA-NS-19-021 to solicit applications for clinical trial planning and implementation to generate evidence-based pain management best practices for the use of existing medications or devices for specific pain conditions.

This re-release HEAL Initiative: Pain Management Effectiveness Research Network: Clinical Trial Planning and Implementation Cooperative Agreement (UG3/UH3 Clinical Trial Required) will prioritize the following areas of interest to generate evidence-based pain management best practices for the use of existing medications or devices for specific pain conditions. The guidelines should be of use to providers in primary care, emergency departments, dental clinics, and hospital settings. The pain conditions of high priority are:

  • pain management in emergency departments, dental clinics, primary care and hospitals;
  • chronic overlapping pain conditions;
  • best practices for effective analgesics when appropriate;
  • pain management in individuals at risk of or with OUD;
  • pain management in those with co-occurring mental health disorders; and
  • Non cancer pain management in persons with medical comorbidities
