News from around the CTSA Program Consortium
Recent CD2H / CTSA Collaborative Publication in Digital Medicine 
Clinical laboratory tests are a key component of electronic health records and contain rich patient information. Often, multiple laboratory tests can be used for the same medical issue, which can make it difficult to integrate data for translational research. In a recent publication, collaborators from the CTSA Program and CD2H presented a novel approach that allows semantic integration of laboratory tests by mapping their results into Human Phenotype Ontology terms. The transformation generated detailed profiles of patient phenotypes that can be used for biomarker screening.
Could Your Research Benefit from a Veterinary Specialist?
The University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, in collaboration with CTSA One Health Alliance (COHA), has developed a translational research workforce training program to leverage veterinary specialists in translational research.  This five-year grant, which is expected to start this summer, will fund post-residency research fellowships for veterinary specialists, research boot camps for new veterinary faculty, and translational summits to bring together physicians and veterinarians around shared diseases. If your research could benefit from veterinary expertise, submit a description of your potential fellowship opportunity for research training of a veterinary specialist in your laboratory to the COHA.
ICYMI: News from the Science & Research World
STAT News: To develop new antibiotics, upend the incentive structure, experts urge
In the U.S. alone, some 2 million people are infected with antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria annually, and 23,000 people die. Despite growing concern about superbugs, many pharmaceutical companies are hesitant to take on the financial risk of developing new, largely unprofitable antibiotics. Which is why some experts want to upend the drug develop incentive structure.

Meet the Team 
Scott Steele fosters collaborative partnerships for CLIC. He worked with stakeholders from across the CTSA Program, government agencies, industry and foundations to help launch the Synergy Paper and Un-Meeting initiatives. Scott is an associate professor of Public Health Sciences and director of Regulatory Science Programs at the University of Rochester and is interested in the intersection between science, technology and policy. Prior to coming to the University of Rochester, Scott was with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and completed his PhD in molecular biology at Princeton University. When not engrossed in science policy issues, Scott enjoys the outdoors with his family.
