Biomedical Informatics (BMI) is the scientific field that is concerned with the optimal use of information, often aided by the use of technology and people (researchers, practitioners, users, etc.), to improve individual health, health care, public health, and biomedical research.
Clinical Services Core
The Clinical Services Core (CSC) is an exciting catalyst for exploring the frontiers of human research.
The Community Engagement (CE) Program is dedicated to enhancing community health and reducing health disparities, particularly in the Appalachian region.
Design, Biostatistics and Ethics Support
The Design, Biostatistics, and Research Ethics Support and Training (DBEST) Core provides statistical support from study design to final analysis and publication of results.
Pilot and Collaborative Studies
The overarching goal of the Pilot Program is to support career development through utilization of pilot funding to reinforce the development of new research teams that cross disciplines and develop new technologies and methodologies for clinical and translational research.
Resources provided by the Regulatory Knowledge and Support (RKS) Core are complementary to existing structures within the University.
The result is a robust environment for human subject research that not only meets the satisfaction of the application rules and regulations, but often exceeds them, further promoting the ethical conduct of human subject research at The Ohio State University and other collaborating institutions across the CTSA Consortium.
Research Education, Training and Career Development
The Research Education, Training and Career Development Program provides several state-of-the-art graduate degree programs, a Mentored Research Training Program (TL1), a Career Development Program (KL2), research education and training programs, and mentorship opportunities led by OSU experts in clinical and translational science.
Tracking and Evaluation
The Center for Health Outcomes, Policy and Evaluation Studies (HOPES) monitors the degree to which CCTS programs and functions are organized, implemented, and operated in accordance with established goals and timelines.
Translational Technologies and Core Resources, and Shared Resources
The CCTS has enabled a consolidation and transformation of current core resources at OSU and NCH.
New Translational Technologies are being identified for development that will expand core resources and services to all aspects of basic, translational, and T1 and T2 clinical research.
