The UR CTSI has been funded for another five years by the National Center for Advancing Translational Science. The $24 million award will allow the institute to continue its efforts to speed the translation of scientific discoveries to the development of therapies that improve health.

UR CTSI Coordinates Coronavirus Research to Maximize Impact

UR CTSI Coordinates Coronavirus Research to Maximize Impact

When COVID-19 first hit Rochester, a team of clinicians and researchers – led by the UR CTSI - mobilized to bring the most promising clinical trials to URMC. Since then, UR CTSI has been pivotal in helping researchers quickly adapt and refocus to meet the challenge of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 Biobank Helps Researchers Share Patients’ Samples

COVID-19 Biobank Helps Researchers Share Patients’ Samples

The dedicated biorepository will safely collect and store serum, plasma and immune cell samples from COVID-19-positive and -negative patients. Researchers will be able to request access to the samples, which will be linked to the patients’ de-identified clinical data.

Facing the Future: Team Science and Funding for Coronavirus Research

Facing the Future: Team Science and Funding for Coronavirus Research

URMC investigators who are pursuing COVID-19-related grants are encouraged to participate in a series of virtual team science sessions, taking place May 11-14, to identify and discuss opportunities for funding and synergy and to receive feedback on applications.
