CCTS Research Service Cores

The CCTS strives to accelerate the translation of scientific discoveries into innovative diagnostics and therapies, disease prevention and improved health care delivery. To accomplish this, the CCTS offers expanded services and resources for investigators at all stages of the translational spectrum, including infrastructure support, funding, and a curriculum for clinical-translational research training.  

How to Request a CCTS Service

The CCTS uses an online system to manage all requests for research assistance. This system ensures that the investigator's request is processed promptly and efficiently and allows for ongoing management of their research projects. The request system also allows investigators to manage their projects and request new services through an account that is accessible via the web anytime, anywhere.

To request a CCTS service, investigators must:

  1. Register as a new user by completing the researcher profile. Please note that a UIC or JBVA email address is required.

  2. Under the Service Request Homepage, create a new project by entering your study's details and select the desired service(s). This includes requests for a REDCap account.

As projects are always accessible through the account homepage, investigators can return to their project and request additional services at any time!

If you require additional help or have questions about your service request, please contact the CCTS Navigator, Lauren Walsh, at
