Congratulations to Our 1,000th Member!

1000th Member

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 5, 2019) – We are proud to announce that we’ve reached 1,000 members of the UK Center for Clinical and Translational Science.

Lori Gresham, informatics project manager for the HEALing Communities Study to reduce opioid deaths, recently became the thousandth member and was presented with a congratulatory collection of CCTS-related items from Philip A Kern, MD, director of the center.

Membership is free and provides access to services from the CCTS and Clinical Research Support Office, including research navigators, study design & analysis, regulatory support, grants management, clinical research units, data sources, and competitive funding opportunities. A full list of services and resources is available here.

In exchange for CCTS/CRSO resources and services, members are asked to respond to occasional surveys and cite the Clinical and Translational Science Award in any publications or presentations that benefit from the support.

“The CCTS is proud to serve our community and help UK be the university for Kentucky. With more than 1000 members from an array of colleges, we support research across multiple health disparity topics, covering the lifespan and the T0 to T4 spectrum of research,” Kern said.

Gresham became a member of the CCTS in the process of requesting a REDCap account. REDCap is a secure, web-based, free application designed exclusively to support data capture for research studies, with easy set-up and maintenance by investigators and research teams. UK currently has 4325 REDCap users with 4212 production projects and 2654 development projects. 

Becoming a member takes less than 60 seconds with your LinkBlue ID. For individuals outside the CCTS, you may request a LinkBlue ID. Join today!
