UR CTSI Website Just Got a Facelift

As some of you may have noticed, the UR CTSI website got a bit of a facelift last week. The web update focused on improving site navigation and creating a more intuitive structure, which we hope will help you find the research funding, education and resources you need - faster.  Over the past several years, the UR CTSI has grown in scope and importance and our new website better represents all of the programs and services we support and offer. Take a look!

Community Health Report on
Roc Health Data Site

Data from the Rochester Regional Health Information Organization’s (RHIO) Community Health Indicators Report are now available to the public at the RocHealthData website.

Commissioned by the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, this report provides a glimpse into residents’ well-being across 13 counties. This population health study is based on analysis of clinical data. Four health measures (smoking, obesity, blood pressure control and diabetes control) were assessed using anonymized data from 2017, with a total sample in excess of 600,000 patient screenings. Read more about Roc Health Data in the UR CTSI Stories Blog.

Translational Science 2020:

Tobacco Regulatory Science

Students at the University of Rochester and Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center are invited to participate in this new annual competition. Each competing team must develop and present a proposed solution or novel methodology to address one or more identified Tobacco Regulatory Research Priorities. Each presentation must be five minutes or less, followed by two minutes of Q&A with the judges.

The competition is organized by the WNY Center for Research on Flavored Tobacco Products (CRoFT), and will be held at the annual CRoFT Conference in Buffalo on September 20. The winning team will travel to the Washington, DC / Maryland region to meet with the FDA and NIH and present their proposal. Completed entry forms are due to CRoFT by Friday, August 30, 5:00 p.m.  Learn more. Contact Scott Steele with questions.

ORCID Identifiers:
With You Throughout Your Career

Open Researcher and Contributor Identification (ORCID), is a non-profit organization that promotes the use of its unique lifelong digital identifier to connect researchers with their science contributions over time and across changes of name, location and institutional affiliation.
