The CCTS Research Navigator helps UIC clinical and translational research investigators and study coordinators find the information and resources needed to navigate research ideas through the university system. The Research Navigator will guide you through a complex research landscape to place you on the right path to the right resources at the right time.
The Library of the Health Sciences offers workshops focused on instruction and consultation in locating and evaluating scientific research indexed in scholarly databases (e.g., Medline, Embase) and in grey (unpublished) literature.
Investigators often request language to describe the CCTS and/or a specific service or resource for inclusion in a grant application. The CCTS Overview and Service Core Description provides the necessary information for most applications.
Each summer, the CCTS Research Education and Careers in Health Program offers a three-day program in Clinical and Translational Research Methods for clinicians interested in incorporating research into their clinical practice or those who are interested in exploring clinical and translational research possibilities.
This program is designed for highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in exploring potential careers in the health sciences, and is focused on familiarizing them with biomedical research and practice opportunities.
If you are interested in conducting research and transferring clinical skills from "bench to the bedside," "study to practice," and "practice to policy," then you should consider one of UIC's CTS Joint Degree Programs.
HON 201, “An Introduction to Clinical and Translational Science,” is an elective, one credit, one semester Honors College course that consists of ten 1.5 hour sessions over the semester. It introduces students, most of whom have a background in the natural sciences, to Clinical and Translational Science (CTS).
The HDR Online Certificate Program, also offered through the UIC SPH, is a post-baccalaureate certificate that provides a documented concentration of study for graduate students, fellows, junior faculty, and working professionals particularly interested in identifying, analyzing, and addressing health disparities in vulnerable communities and broader populations.
