Presentation Transcript

The Indiana CTSI HUB

Bill Barnett

Director, Information Infrastructures,

Indiana CTSI

What is the Indiana CTSI?

  • The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute

  • Translational = translating basic to pre-clinical and clinical research to products and therapies that improve health outcomes

  • One of 46 Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) across the country.

  • A collaboration of the IU School of Medicine, IU Bloomington, Purdue, and Notre Dame


  • Build national clinical and translational research capability

  • Provide training and improve career development of clinical and translational scientists

  • Enhance consortium-wide collaborations

  • Improve the health of our communities and the nation

  • Advance T1 translational research to move basic laboratory discoveries and knowledge into clinical testing

How do we develop HUB services?

We determine needs, then take a least cost, rapid development approach to developing HUB tools and services to meet those needs:

  • We prefer to use existing HUB components or Joomla! software Extensions (4699 as of 4/12/2010).

  • We then look for existing open source Web 2.0 applications we can easily plug into the Joomla! (eg., HUB) framework.

  • We then adapt existing non Web 2.0 applications into the HUB

  • If all else fails, we develop our own Joomla! Extensions or applications.

HUB Accomplishments for Years 1 and 2

  • Put Clinical Trials Listings on the HUB

  • Added PubMed and IUSM faculty publications into integrated search (IU grants coming next)

  • Developed a Grants Management Tool for internal grant programs

  • Put the Project Development Teams (PDTs) Online

  • Developed a web presence for CHEP

  • Put the Indiana CTSI Cores online (the TTR Service Cores)

  • Provided Discussion Forum, Form, and Survey Tools

  • Authentication through Federated Identity with 6 other institutions (including NIH)

  • Redesigned the home page to improve usability (more coming)

Current HUB Projects(partially funded by a CTSI ARRA Supplement)

  • Federated Identity support for all applications

  • Ontology tagging for all content

  • Alfresco Share Private Group Collaboration

  • Industry Partner Discovery Tool

  • REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) from Vanderbilt

  • OpenMRS Patient Recruitment

  • Online submission of next year’s annual report via forms

  • Next phase of usability improvements

  • Hosting to be moved to IU cyberinfrastructure

Current HUB Projects: Cyberinfrastructure

  • Federated Identity support for all applications

  • Ontology tagging for all content

Current HUB Projects: Alfresco Share

Private Group Collaboration

  • Based on expressed need of researchers at different institutions to privately share documents for grant proposals and projects

  • Will support ePHI data sets

  • An open source product used by over 50 organizations internationally

HUB Prototype:

Discover Industry Licensors

  • Database of Industry licensing reps by specialization and disease

  • Partnership with Cook Medical, IURTC, IHIN, and Biocrossroads

  • Currently over 1,000 names in the database

  • Business model in development.
