CTMS Update: Autumn 2018

By | CTMS, News

The CRI’s successful development of a Clinical Trials Management System (CTMS) for the University of Chicago continues on pace this autumn as we prepare for the launch of the system. After a year of iterative work to develop and test key components, the project is now in the final user acceptance testing phase and is set for deployment in mid-November 2018. Once the CTMS is in production, all new clinical trials at the University will be initiated within it.

With our system, which includes a fully functional front end for budgeting and reporting in addition to managing clinical data, all information for University of Chicago clinical trials will be easily accessible in one place. The CRI has extended our relationship with Bad Rabbit Consulting and will continue to work closely with their research administration experts as we manage and further develop the CTMS after it is in production. We look forward to the successful deployment of this enterprise system that will unify, standardize, and modernize clinical research efforts across the BSD.

Gabrielle Miller Kids First Data Resource Center launches research portal

By | News

The Gabriella Miller Kids First Data Resource Center has officially launched its Data Resource Portal, a powerful, open-source resource for research in pediatric disorders. The portal brings together clinical and genomic data related to childhood diseases, including pediatric cancer and birth defects, and enables researchers to collaborate with one another and analyze data in a secure, cloud-based environment.

The CRI is committed to several efforts to use cross-institutional data sharing to study and combat diseases, especially rare diseases such as pediatric cancer. We are proud to be part of the development of this important resource, with our Sr. Programmer Luca Graglia, MS, fully dedicated to the project. Read more about the Kids First DRC and our role here.

Successful REDCapCon draws to a close

By | News, REDCap

The CRI and University of Chicago wrapped up a successful REDCapCon last week. The CRI was honored to host this important three-day event, which brings together REDCap administrators and technical team members from institutions all over the world for education and networking. This year was the tenth annual meeting and one of the largest gatherings to date, with 327 attendees from 201 institutions representing 20 countries across 6 continents.

Many members of the CRI, led by our REDCap Administrator Julissa Acevedo, contributed to planning and executing the event. The keynote speech was given by Dr. Julian Solway of the Institute for Translational Medicine.

REDCapCon 2019 will be held in September 2019 in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
