Impact/significance: Direct feedback from participants about their experiences in research is essential to improve representative participation in research. As a Rockefeller University CCTS-led collaboration of 6 CTSAs, we built a new streamlined RPPS/REDCap infrastructure to collect and analyze participant feedback. Five CTSAs implemented locally configured Use Cases of the new infrastructure

In the early days of the pandemic, with commercial COVID tests in short supply, Rockefeller’s Robert B. Darnell developed an in-house assay to identify positive cases within the Rockefeller community. It turned out to be easier and safer to administer than the tests available at the time, and it has been used tens of thousands of times over the past nine months to identify and isolate infected

This series coordinated by the Heilbrunn Family Center for Research Nursing at the Rockefeller University CTSA is designed to give nurses and clinicians the knowledge and skills they need to participate in research, step by step. Each column will present the concepts that underpin evidence-based practice- from research design to data interpretation. The articles are accompanied by a podcast
- November 06, 2020In May, the National Center for Accelerating Clinical Translational Science (NCATS) granted a $2.7 Million award to Rockefeller University to develop new infrastructure facilitating collection of research participant feedback for widespread adoption: “Empowering the Participant Voice: Collaborative Infrastructure and Validated Tools for Collecting Participant Feedback to Improve the Clinical
- November 02, 2020The gut is an unusually noisy place, where hundreds of species of bacteria live alongside whatever microbes happen to have hitched a ride in on your lunch. Scientists have long suspected that the gut’s immune system, in the face of so many stimuli, takes an uncharacteristically blunt approach to population control and protection from foreign invaders—churning out non-specific antibodies with broad
- November 02, 2020For people with rheumatoid arthritis, life is a little like sailing. On clear days with no symptoms, everything works exactly as it should; when a storm rolls in and symptoms flare up, even simple tasks become painfully difficult. But while literal storms are easy to forecast, arthritis flares tend to strike with no rhyme or reason.

A series of compounds discovered in the laboratory of Rockefeller’s Jan L. Breslow will be developed into novel medicines, the drug discovery company Bridge Medicines recently announced. These compounds have shown promise in treating immune-mediated conditions in animals, such as models of rheumatoid arthritis, without compromising the immune system and harming the rest of the body—a side effect

While there is universal recognition of the importance of team science and team leadership in clinical and translational science, there is a remarkable dearth of valid and reliable outcome measures on team science leadership. As a result, we developed a semi-quantitative translational science-specific team leadership competency assessment tool and have begun pilot studies to validate it and use it
The New York and Connecticut Consortium encourages joint ventures among the New York and Connecticut area CTSA institutions (NYCON) to develop collaboration between CTSA programs in the areas of medical scientist training; the creation of regional databases of facilities; regional training opportunities for investigators and research coordinators; the exploration of barriers to improved social
