LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 22, 2014) -- The UK Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) has launched a new website that is especially oriented to researchers who currently use or could benefit from CCTS resources, including research services, funding opportunities, and education and career development.
The CCTS offers a spectrum of multidisciplinary support to assist investigators across the entire cycle of clinical and translational research, from protocol development and participant recruitment to regulatory affairs and evaluation. Researchers can easily navigate the new website to explore available resources and services and find contact information for further assistance.
The site lists open research funding announcements, and the “Services & Resources” tab offers a researcher-oriented listing of services by stage of research development. Investigators can also find information about CCTS core services (including biostatistics, informatics, clinical services, community engagement, drug and device development, and regulatory support) and electronic tools. The online CCTS Service Request Form facilitates access to these services and resources.
Additionally, the website includes information on the various educational and career development programs that CCTS offers for graduate and professional students, staff, and faculty, including funded training programs, graduate and certificate programs, and mentoring opportunities.
The new homepage also provides the latest CCTS news, a calendar of upcoming events, and research spotlights. Information for research participants is available as well.
