  1. ProgramsSeptember 2014

  2. Connect • Learn • Get Help • The CTSI helps research teams work faster and better.

  3. NCATS Transition • Leadership • Interim Director Tom Insel (Director of NIMH) • Chris Austin named as Director Sep 2012 • Divisions of Preclinical Innovation and Clinical Innovation had interim directors, Petra Kaufmann now Clinical Innovation Director • 12/23/2011: NCATS formed; NCRR disbanded • NCATS Purpose: advance translational sciences by • coordinating and developing resources that leverage basic research in support of translational science; and • developing partnerships and working cooperatively to foster synergy in ways that do not create duplication, redundancy, and competition with industry activities.

  4. IOM Report – released 6/25/2013 • Suggested vision: • A “tightly integrated network that works collectively to enhance the transit of therapeutics, diagnostics, and preventive interventions along the development pipeline; disseminate innovative translational research methods and best practices; and provide leadership in informatics standards and policy development to promote shared resources.” • Recommendations • (roughly in order of prominence): • NCATS should take a more active leadership role as the principal party in cooperative agreements • Greatly streamline committee structure • The consortium should work more cohesively together and with external partners toward carefully chosen strategic goals • Establish a cross-consortium “Innovation Fund” • Tighten up the evaluation program • CTSAs should be allowed more freedom to capitalize on institutional strengths • CTSAs should concentrate efforts toward innovative education programs • CTSAs should continue to lead efforts in child health research

  5. Deconstruction of CTSA Consortium

  6. NCATS Response to the IOM Report • NCATS Advisory Council Working Group on the IOM Report: The CTSA Program May 2014 • Workforce Development-Goal: The translational science workforce has the skills and knowledge necessary to advance translation of discoveries. • Collaboration/Engagement-Goal: Stakeholders are engaged in collaborations to advance translation. • Integration-Goal: Translational science is integrated across its multiple phases and disciplines within complex populations and across the individual lifespan. • Methods/Processes-Goal: The scientific study of the process of conducting translational science itself enables significant advances in translation.

  23. Pilot Funding by Department ($000s)

  24. Clinical and translational research and supporting services are organized within a URMC academic home

  25. Clinical Research Center • The CRC provides support for patient-oriented research: • Welcoming In- and outpatient facilities located within the Medical Center (G-5035) and in the Saunders Research Building (1.302) • Experienced assistance in Research Nursing, Bionutrition, and Clinical Research Coordination • The Center accommodates pediatric to adult research subjects. • Access to the Center requires a short application and IRB approval. • Modest fees are charged for services.

  26. Expanding the reach and efficiency of clinical trials through technology • 21st century technology and methodology should expand the availability of clinical research • Clinical trials of new interventions (drugs, devices) will likely benefit the most from these new methods • Using remote access (things like Skype) will permit research participants to be seen at home • Using remote data sensing (like via smart phones) will simplify getting information • Better planning of studies will allow them to be smaller and more efficient

  27. A diverse spectrum of community members and organizations are engaged in the research process

  28. Improving the health of our community(s) • Healthcare delivery will change, driven by ACA and financial forces • URMC is committed to its Community mission • Healthshould improve as healthcare changes • We need to measure what is of most importance to the health of the community and target change in healthcare to the community needs • The CTSI wants to be sure that the community’s needs for healthcare change, and measuring the impacts on community health are a URMC priority • We need to organize how that input is structured so that it is consistently heard and acted upon

  29. National CTSA Directions • Revamped NCATS organization- P Kaufmann • National Steering Committee setting priorities • Site supplements to lead national joint efforts • Future areas of focus uncertain still- recent RFA has substantial changes especially for CRC like structures and pilot funding • Team science essential
