Beginning in January 2020, clinical research teams will begin reporting accrual data in uTRAC. This will apply to all IRB approved projects that meet the NIH definition of a clinical trial regardless of funding source (see weblink further below to determine if your study is applicable). Study teams from Pediatrics and Internal Medicine have successfully piloted this system over the last year. Early adoption is encouraged. ... Read MoreSelect...

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.
HEAL PAIN ERN - FUNDING ANNOUNCEMENT
FOA Publication Date: January 21, 2020
Earliest Submission: February 24, 2020
Submission Deadline: March 24, 2020
The National Center for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS) is again collaborating on a trans-NIH initiative. A re-issuance of the funding opportunity announcement RFA-NS-19-021 was recently published 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.
RFA-NS-20-028 is the funding announcement for the HEAL Initiative: Pain Management Effectiveness Research Network: Clinical Trial Planning and Implementation Cooperative Agreement (UG3/UH3 Clinical Trial Required) and is prioritizing 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
