New system for requesting CTSI services

On Monday, August 1, CTSI released a new web-based system to request research support services, such as project management, regulatory support, clinical procedures, and biostatistical collaboration. The new Request for Services system is part of the launch of the Clinical Translational Research Portal, designed to provide personalized, secure access to research project information for investigators, study teams, and administrators.

The previous system will remain available in a read-only format for your convenience.

CTSI will continue to review new projects and applications during this transition and there will be no interruption in the review process.

Please note that initial functionality of the Portal is designed to help CTSI manage our clinical research services function: intake of new projects; tracking services provided to research teams; and invoicing for those services. Additionally, with the recent receipt of the CTSA grant, the new Request for Services system helps CTSI collect information about projects required for reporting to the NIH.

Additional functionality will be developed in the coming months and years. The development team is committed to and actively engaged in aligning all CTSI systems with University systems, such as the Solutions for Integrated Research Compliance (SIRC) project. Our goal is for the Portal, while first designed to meet CTSI's core business needs, to become an efficient mechanism for accessing and sharing accurate, timely information among the clinical research community.

Please contact the CTSI Front Door at 612-625-2874 or ctsi@umn.edu for assistance.
