CCTS support helps researchers reach their goals

The CCTS is committed to the Clinical and Translational Science Award program's mission, "Accelerating discoveries toward better health."

Take a look below at what researchers have to say about the services and resources offered by the CCTS:

“The CCTS has impacted my research by helping me to learn how to handle human subjects in an ethical study, providing data management and informatics assistance, and providing biostatistics services.

The CCTS has been invaluable to my research as they literally reduced the time it took to do my research by about 25 percent! I highly recommend the CCTS to all researchers conducting translational research.”

Gayle Gordillo, MD

Albert Lai, PhD

“Our research team received a pilot award from the Appalachian Translational Research Network to support a chronic disease remote home monitoring feasibility study in rural Appalachian elderly.

Without the core resources and monetary support supplied by the CCTS Community Engagement program and Ohio University's Appalachian Rural Health Institute, we would not have been able to conduct this study.

This study was very valuable for assisting us in understanding the challenges associated with conducting home-based research in the Appalachian community and in giving us ideas on how to conduct further community-engaged research.”

“The Pilot and Collaborative Studies program supported our human clinical study, which allowed us to expand upon our understanding of how baseline diet and food matrices affect the metabolism of black raspberries in prostate cancer patients.

The results from this highly collaborative, multidisciplinary grant led to a successful NIH U01 submission, as well as a pending NIH R01 proposal and a published article in Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.”

Yael Vodovotz, PhD

Kathleen Dungan, MD, MPH

“My research often involves potentially vulnerable hospitalized patients. The Regulatory Knowledge and Support program helped me to create consent forms and Data and Safety Monitoring Plans for multiple studies from scratch.

This support helped address potential concerns in the review process and increased the strength of my grant applications. The program is a great, efficient resource for young and experienced investigators alike.”

“The help of the nurses in the Clinical Research Center has been invaluable for my research, which could not have been launched without the funds I received through an award from the Pilot and Collaborative Studies program.”

Angela Brown, PhD

Laura Mackner, PhD

“The support we received from the CCTS for using ResearchMatch to recruit participants for our study was very helpful! Having someone who was easy to work with and so knowledgable about the process made recruiting for our study much easier!”

“I was pleased to find that in addition to pilot funding, the CCTS provides statistical design and biomedical informatics support for research. CCTS pilot funds helped to kick start my career as a young investigator.

The support of the CCTS enabled me to generate key preliminary data toward my first AHA and NIH grant submissions. I highly recommend that early stage investigators contact the CCTS and utilize their services.”

Cameron Rink, PhD

Baldwin Way, PhD

“As a new faculty member shifting from studying drugs in animals to studying drugs in humans, the regulatory hurdles to getting a study up and running were daunting.

I was trained as a scientist, but felt like I needed to be trained as a lawyer in order to properly understand the appropriate regulations.

Being able to consult with the Regulatory Knowledge and Support program was invaluable in navigating the regulations and building a research protocol that both protects the participants and is efficient.”

“The CCTS Pilot and Collaborative Studies program helped to support my research project from the very beginning of my time here at Ohio State.

The award allowed me to create a multidisciplinary research team that has resulted in three publications, one private foundation grant, and two grant submissions.”

Jose Otero, MD, PhD

Colleen Spees, PhD

“The CCTS has truly been a blessing. The CCTS funded my research with a TL1 Award for two years, and since I received the award I am able to devote all of my time to research. I have been able to attend many of the courses that they offer, use several of their core services, and attend their grant writing and research design seminars.

Without the TL1 Award there is no way I could be this far in my research. [With this funding] I am now able to devote 20-25 more hours a week solely to my research. This directly resulted in a couple of publications and contributed to my involvement in two other studies that make my initial study more translational. Due to the time the CCTS allowed me to have, I was provided with many opportunities. I was even able to co-write OSU’s first nutritional genomics course.

The CCTS is a fabulous resource for students and employees looking to enhance their translational research training and to collaborate with top notch investigators.”

Stephanie Di Stasi Roewer, PhD, PT, OCS

"I absolutely loved the Business of Science program. Every scientist should attend this series because business acumen is a must for a successful research team. I have completely reformed my approach to team building and strategic planning as a result."
