Research and Discovery Grand Rounds: Leading High-Impact Team Science: Opportunities and Challenges in Clinical and Translational Research

Date/Time: Oct 26, 2023, 12:00 PM to Oct 26, 2023, 01:00 PM

Location: Zoom


By definition, Clinical and Translational Research is team science. Moving discoveries from the bench to the clinic to the community requires collaboration across disciplinary, career stage, and institutional boundaries. While team science has many benefits, including the ability to address more complex questions, there are also challenges in coordinating people and tasks across those boundaries. Join Betsy Rolland, Ph.D., MLIS, MPH as she presents team science best practices that CTR leaders can implement to mitigate some of the challenges and discusses the benefits of Collaboration Planning, an intervention developed at the University of Wisconsin’s CTSA and now being implemented in Frontiers. With a minimal investment of time and effort, Collaboration Planning can help teams design a more deliberate approach to their collaborative work that results in lower levels of conflict and greater scientific progress.

Introduction to Biostatistics for Clinical & Translational Research - July 19 The KUMC Department of Biostatistics & Data Science, with support from the University of Kansas Cancer Center and Frontiers, offers this free four-day program in biostatistical methods for clinical and translational researchers. Biostatistics plays a critical role in clinical and translational research, influencing everything from study design to results interpretation. Clinicians and scientists should have a basic understanding of biostatistics to support critical appraisal of research, collaboration, communication, and evidence-based practice.  Biostatistical skills can empower researchers to participate more actively in shaping study design and analysis to ensure clinically relevant and feasible research questions, reduce the risk of bias, and improve research efficiency. Topics include: Scientific Rigor and Reproducibility Hierarchy of Study Design and Scientific Evidence Hypothesis Testing and Estimation Common Statistical Methods (Student’s t, Chi-square, ANOVA, Linear regression, Logistic regression, Survival analysis) Jul 23 08:00 AM • Stowers Institute EMBO Laboratory Leadership for Group Leaders 2024 The Stowers Institute hosts the European Molecular Biology Organization’s Laboratory Leadership Course, an annual four-day workshop for scientific group leaders delivered by EMBO Solutions.

Sep 18 08:00 AM • In-person Heartland Conference on Health Equity & Patient-Centered Care With the recognition of the critical roles patient, community and team-informed science plays in health research, mechanisms to promote, facilitate and reward team and community engaged science are emerging. Diverse teams of collaborating scholars and meaningful inclusion of patients, providers, community members and other key stakeholders in decision-making is sorely needed to address research challenges and advance health improvement for all. With this conference, we would like to explore the rich interplay of community and university together, with the thought that the strength of our community may determine meaningful research priorities and relevant programs and providers. The Heartland Conference on Health Equity and Patient Centered Care highlights community - academic partnerships and encourages open discussion among academic health centers, community health workers, faith-based community, and community-based service organizations. ​Participants will engage with other regional health researchers, community-based organizations, and public health professionals to address health equity in our communities and region.
