The UMB ICTR Cores — Biostatistics, Informatics, and the Community and Collaboration (CCC) — as well as the ICTR Studios Program and Research Navigator, offer no-cost services to UMB faculty. In addition, the UMB ICTR Vouchers Program helps to offset other, non-ICTR Core services available across campus, and the ICTR ATIP Program offers pilot grants. See below for more information about the UMB ICTR Cores and Programs. Visit the UMB ICTR Support and Funding page for information about how to apply for these resources.
ICTR Biostatistics Core
The ICTR Biostatistics Core provides biostatistical support in the design, implementation, and interpretation of clinical translational research studies.
The ICTR Community and Collaboration Core (CCC) provides expert patient- and community-centered services and resources, such as the PATIENTS program, help in setting up focus groups, developing participant instruction videos, and more.
ICTR Informatics Core
The ICTR Informatics Core provides access to clinical and health care informatics resources and support with data management (Research HARBOR, REDCap, Qualtrics).
ICTR Studios Program
The ICTR Studios Program offers a series of integrated, dynamic, and interactive "roundtable" discussions to assist the researcher by providing expertise in areas such as hypothesis generation, study design, biostatistics, implementation, analysis and interpretation, recruitment, and research ethics.
ICTR Vouchers Program
The ICTR Vouchers Program awards vouchers (micro grants) valued up to $10,000 in UMB Core services and/or community-engagement/collaboration services to enable preliminary work and generation of pilot data on clinical translational research projects and to defray the cost of these services.
ICTR ATIP Program
The ICTR Accelerated Translational Incubator Pilot (ATIP) Program provides funds to initiate, implement, and complete a research project that will contribute to the development of new therapies, devices, or approaches to clinical research. The ICTR will award pilot grants up to $50,000 to investigators at UMB with some awards earmarked for community-focused research.
ICTR Research Navigator
The ICTR Navigator is here to help direct investigators to the clinical translational research services they need and advise them on the “next steps.”
