The Indiana CTSI HUB www.indianactsi.org 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 www.indianactsi.org
CTSA/CTSI Goals • 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 www.indianactsi.org
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. www.indianactsi.org
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) www.indianactsi.org
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 • i2iconnect.org 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 www.indianactsi.org
Current HUB Projects: Cyberinfrastructure • Federated Identity support for all applications • Ontology tagging for all content www.indianactsi.org
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 www.indianactsi.org
HUB Prototype: i2iconnect.org 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.
