CTSA Program Funding Laid Groundwork for Discovery of B.1.1.7 Variant in California

At 2:30 in the morning last December, researchers at a Scripps Research lab in La Jolla were fairly certain they had identified the first B.1.1.7 variant of SARS-CoV-2 in California. They had received a sample a few hours before that their collaborating institution, the University of California, San Diego (USCD), suspected could be it. After hours of sequencing, there were only a few more gaps in the genome to fill in. 

Special JCTS Issue Highlights CTSA Program Response to COVID-19

A special theme issue of the Journal of Clinical and Translational Science (JCTS) highlights the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The compilation of 14 articles reflects on how CTSA Program hubs addressed the crisis, from pivoting research to creating new programs and initiatives. It shares lessons learned and discusses which practices can continue in the future to advance translational science.

Personas Project: Input Requested

The CTS Personas project consists of a portfolio of Persona profiles describing the experiences, goals and needs of twelve employees in Clinical and Translational Science. These 1-page profiles are actionable reference documents for user-centered design work to create audience-appropriate IT solutions, training programs, communications tools and other materials by and for the CTS workforce. For more details: Personas for the translational workforce in the Journal of Clinical and Translational Science. 
If you currently work in clinical and translational science, your input is requested to help select our next Persona profiles. Using this online form, please take a few minutes to provide your opinions on the relative importance of suggested roles and include your additional thoughts and insights on additional roles you'd like to see profiled. The online survey will close on August 20, 2021.
