Cancer Research at CTSA Program Hubs

May was National Cancer Research Month, and Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program hubs are on the forefront of cancer research. From genetic counseling to mining electronic health records, the CTSA Program is approaching cancer research from multiple directions, with the goal of getting treatments to patients more quickly.

Visit our website and click through the map to see the contributions hubs are making to cancer research.

Black Voices in Research: University of Florida CTSI Provides a Platform for Underrepresented Voices

Dressed in black, Tiffany Danielle Chisholm Pineda stood on a stage and spoke about her experience as a Black research professional working to eliminate personal biases in scientists. 

“Most of the time I’m pointing out what people didn’t have the ability to see because of the perspective of the lens of their culture,” she said. “I am here to share my story so that you can look and see what needs to be done to evolve, to grow, to clean or even throw away your lenses so that these stories are no longer being told, even in 2021.”

Pineda is the chair of the University of Florida Clinical and Translational Science Institute’s Diversity and Cultural Competence Council (UF CTSI DC3), which is funded through the NIH’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS).

She is now in the beginning stages of putting together a “call to action” for other CTSA Program hubs, which would bring hubs together to exchange ideas.

Webinar: Participant Engagement Platform (PEP): Stanford’s honest broker services for participant recruitment

Stanford Medicine’s Research Participation services has developed the Participant Engagement Platform (PEP) as a way of offering and managing “honest broker” outreach, such as Direct Email and Epic MyChart. The Research Participation team (honest broker) sends the study invitation to potential participants (identified via EHR cohort search) on behalf of the study team. Only when a potential participant expresses interest, does the Research Participation team pass on their contact info to the study team for follow-up. This is an exciting way to scale recruitment to engage more participants, while protecting patient privacy and reducing study team burden.
