Collaboration Tools and Resources
CCTS implements, supports and facilitates access to research networking systems.
The CCTS provides access to the following tools and resources to allow information to be shared across teams and departments while having primary control residing with the investigators:
- SciVal Experts: SciVal Experts is a searchable database of expertise across all disciplines in the health sciences colleges and related departments at The Ohio State University and is linked to other expertise databases at other academic and research organizations across the country and around the world.
- CCTS Collaboration Portal: Microsoft SharePoint is a software platform and a family of software products developed by Microsoft for collaboration, file sharing and web publishing. The CCTS utilizes SharePoint to establish individual web pages for each research project on both the internet and intranet for collaboration between investigators, faculty and interested parties of the research data.
- OSU Clinical Research Professionals Network (OCRP): The OSU Clinical Research Professionals Network provides an excellent forum for networking and developing collaborative relationships for new projects. OCRP also provides education and training opportunities for both new and experienced research professionals.
- Cooperative Human Tissue Network (CHTN): The Cooperative Human Tissue Network specializes in the prospective procurement, preservation and distribution of human tissues for research with low processing fees.
Established by the National Cancer Institute in 1987, more than 900,000 high quality human specimens have been provided from CHTN participating university sites to more than 1,000 investigators leading to a broad range of high impact scientific publications.
Interested investigators are encouraged to contact Randy Mandt, CHTN Midwestern Division (OSU) with questions.
