The UMB ICTR has brought together experts across campus to provide researchers these FREE! services:
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 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.”
ICTR Also Offers Voucher Support and Pilot Grant Funding
ICTR Voucher (micro-grant) Program
The ICTR Vouchers Program awards vouchers (micro grants) -- valued up to $10,000 for funded projects and up to $5,000 for unfunded projects -- for CIBR, GCRC, BIORESCO, NORC, IDS services, UMMC basic lab test services as well as off-campus community-engaged research service expenses to enable preliminary work and generation of pilot data on clinical translational research projects and to defray the cost of these services.
ICTR ATIP Grant 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.
