We would like all clinical investigators within our Oklahoma Shared Clinical and Translational Resources partner institutions to be aware that the OSCTR Clinical Research space in the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center is now open and available for your clinical research studies. We have a new clinical research coordinator, Janice Gales, who looks forward to aiding investigators with clinical research projects and regulatory assistance.
This year the OSCTR is starting a research training program,
Translating Practice into Research (TPIR), for healthcare professionals, clinical investigators,
and basic scientists funded by the NIH Oklahoma Shared Clinical and Translational Resources
grant. The goal of the TPIR trainee program is to produce a group of clinicians and scientists
who have the ability to translate their clinical observations and ideas for improving practice into
practical and feasible research projects. Attached is a detailed description. Application due date
