Upcoming Events

May 20 08:00 AM • Everywhere! Clinical Trials Day Celebrate Clinical Trials Day! Jun 03 11:00 AM • Virtual Trial Innovation Network Webinar: Weeding Out the Bad from the Good: Strategies for Researchers Preventing and Identifying Invalid Online Survey Responses Weeding Out the Bad from the Good: Strategies for Researchers Preventing and Identifying Invalid Online Survey Responses Rachel Schles, PhD  &  Caroline Deheck, MEd With the explosion of AI and machine language learning & modeling in the last few years, online surveys are seeing an increase in invalid, fraudulent, and/or bot responses mixed in with valid human responses. This session provides an overview of identifying and preventing invalid survey responses, including examples from the presenters’ experiences conducting online surveys, and the results from a recent survey of researchers conducting online surveys. The focus of the presentation will be discussing proactive strategies for invalid survey response management, including specific REDCap settings. Jun 10 08:00 AM • Hybrid Genomic Medicine Short Course 2024 Next generation sequencing has had a profound impact on biomedical research. Clinicians and scientists seeking to stay abreast of the field may be challenged by the rapid rate of genomic discovery and technologic advancement. The Genomic Medicine Center, with support of the NIH, offers a four-day CME/CEU program in translational genomics. Topics include: Technical and analytic aspects of DNA and RNA Variant analysis Gene regulation and epigenetics Polygenic Risk Scores Clinical and ethical implications of genomics The course features hands on workshops to teach NGS analysis skills, including analysis of long read HiFi genomes.  A unique aspect of the program is the opportunity for enrollees to have genomic sequencing completed on themselves. Participants can use the resultant data file as they learn variant identification and characterization. This strategy, known as Personalized Genomic Educational Testing (PGET) is optional and provided at no additional cost. This program is supported by the NHGRI Initiative to Maximize Research Education in Genomics: Courses for Skills Development (R25) program. More information.
Jun 21 11:00 AM • Virtual June Open Forum on Biostatistics The Open Forum on Biostatistics is a service provided by the Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) function of Frontiers, our institutions Clinical and Translational Science Institute.  The purpose of this forum is to provide investigators with an opportunity to ask questions related to BERD topic areas.  These may relate to research and training, and the forum provides a new avenue to connect with colleagues in support of the research and education missions of the BERD function of Frontiers.  This meeting is open to staff and faculty from all Frontiers Partner Institutions. You can email BERD navigator Megan Tremblay mtremblay@kumc.edu if you have any questions prior to the forum. The forum will be hosted by two biostatisticians of the BERD function of Frontiers. Join here. Jun 27 10:00 AM • Virtual Building Your Translational Research Portfolio: Best Practices for CV and Biosketch Management Features Ronald Chen, M.D.; Lisa M. Harlan-Williams, Ph.D.; Heather Fielding-Gebhardt, Ph.D.; and Kirsten Tharp.  For additional information, email Holly Zink, Ph.D. Jul 01 11:00 AM • Virtual Trial Innovation Network Webinar Innovations in action: Leveraging the Epic platform to accelerate patient-centric recruitment and improve representation nnovations in action: Leveraging the Epic platform to accelerate patient-centric recruitment and improve representation Nancy Smider  &  Tom Yosick Electronic health records (EHRs) are a ubiquitous component of the technology landscape for healthcare. Epic is an EHR platform that has a strong commitment to innovation through iterative collaboration with our community of stakeholders. This community includes organizations using our software, patient/participant/consumer advisory groups, consortia and workgroups focused on a range of aspects of clinical research and trials, as well as our own teams. In this presentation we’ll share some of the ways our platform has effectively accelerated recruitment and enhanced representation and retention in clinical trials. Both past successes and new opportunities to impact the trial landscape will be discussed.
