Research and Education Resources

Data Center
The Center for Research on Health Care Data Center provides data management and biostatistical support for clinical and translational research projects. It emphasizes high-quality research in its provision of data management, database development and maintenance, and biostatistical support. The designers and programmers provide website development and data collection through online portals. The biostatisticians have expertise in a variety of areas, ranging from statistical genetics to longitudinal data analysis.
To catalyze the development of innovative, technology-enhanced courses and programs, the ICRE founded the Innovative Design for Education and Assessment (IDEA) Lab. The IDEA Lab provides instructors with research-based pedagogical consulting, instructional design support, and video production resources.
Responsible Conduct of Research
Learning about the responsible conduct of research (RCR) is important for all clinical and translational research trainees. NIH suggests the following topics as a minimum for comprehensive RCR training:

  • Conflict of interest (personal, professional, financial)
  • Policies regarding human subjects, live vertebrate animal subjects in research, and safe laboratory practices
  • Mentor/mentee responsibilities and relationships
  • Collaborative research, including collaborations with industry
  • Peer review
  • Data acquisition and laboratory tools; management, sharing and ownership
  • Research misconduct and policies for handling misconduct
  • Responsible authorship and publication
  • The scientist as a responsible member of society, contemporary ethical issues in biomedical research, and the environmental and societal impacts of scientific research

To help trainees and students on F, T, and K grants, the CTSI offers a number of workshops throughout the year on a wide range of topics, including those listed above.
Stakeholder Engagement Resources
The Comparative Effectiveness Research Center (CERC) and the Qualitative, Evaluation and Stakeholder Engagement Research Services (Qual EASE) are available resources to help with stakeholder engagement.
