Cancer screening saves lives, but not everyone is up to date on their recommended screenings. A 2018 pilot study funded by the University of Rochester Clinical and Translational Science Institute (UR CTSI) helped lay the foundation for an expanding research project testing whether a text-messaging intervention can boost screenings for cervical, colon and lung cancers. The UR CTSI-funded pilot

In 2017, Jeffrey Bazarian, M.D., M.P.H., a concussion researcher at the University of Rochester Medical Center, wanted to pull together a national network of concussion clinics to run multi-site clinical trials. He turned to the University of Rochester Clinical and Translational Science Institute (UR CTSI) and Trial Innovation Network (TIN) for help and ended up connecting with a group already

Digital health technologies are poised to change the way we study health, develop therapies and treat diseases. In the fall of 2020, the University of Rochester Clinical and Translational Science Institute (UR CTSI) launched the Digital Health Seedling, a new one-year award of up to $25,000 for studies that use or develop digital health tools, methods or approaches such as electronic medical

Our work focuses on several gaps in clinical research training. First, trainees lack the early immersion in an environment where they learn that multi- and interdisciplinary science is the norm rather than the exception. This is because training often occurs at the graduate or post-graduate level and is focused on research methods and logistical and regulatory aspects of conducting clinical

The University of Rochester Clinical and Translational Science Institute (UR-CTSI) led the organization of the UR research response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Never in the last 100 years have so many researchers been affected by, and been involved in studying, a single event that has so deeply impacted our country. The UR-CTSI’s leadership at UR has been particularly critical in two areas: Air

The longitudinal relationship between immune cell profiles and frailty in patients with breast cancer receiving chemotherapy

Frailty is associated with an increased risk of chemotherapy toxicity. Cellular markers of inflammation can help identify patients with frailty characteristics. However, the role of cellular markers of inflammation in identifying patients at risk of developing chemotherapy-induced frailty and their

MicroRNA-574 regulates FAM210A expression and influences pathological cardiac remodeling

Aberrant expression of mitochondrial proteins impairs cardiac function and causes heart disease. The mechanism of regulation of mitochondria encoded protein expression during cardiac disease, however, remains underexplored. Here, we show that multiple pathogenic cardiac stressors induce the

Rehabilitation of cortically induced visual field loss

Homonymous visual field defects are a common sequela of stroke, and are assumed to be permanent within a few weeks of the event. Because consensus about the efficacy of rehabilitation is lacking, visual therapy is rarely prescribed. Here, we review current rehabilitation options and strategies in
