I HAVE A PRETTY GOOD IDEA OF THE TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH AREA THAT I NEED HELP IN

We have organized the IHS into three Resource Areas.   Each is described briefly below, with contact information for the leader of each area.  Feel free to contact a Resource Area leader to discuss your project.  Our aim is to get back with you within 48 hours.  If that does not happen please call IHS Coordinator Ms. Susie Herndon (520) 626-5594 , or click here to send her an email.

 

IHS TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH RESOURCE AREAS

STATISTICS/BIOINFORMATICS RESOURCE (SBR)

The SBR is focused on providing expert consultation and analysis services for translational projects in the areas of statistics and bioinformatics.  Helping to plan, design and size future studies, as well as analyzing existing data sets that include high density –omics analyses are just a few of the areas in which SBR offers support.

To contact SBR Leader, Dean Billheimer, Ph.D. call (520) 626-9902 or click here to send him an email.

 

HUMAN STUDIES RESOURCE (HSR)

The HSR aims to give expert assistance to investigators considering conducting a study involving human subjects or human samples.  Carrying out human studies has many hurdles that can seem daunting without expert guidance.  SWEHSC experts share their many years of experience in areas that include epidemiology, regulatory clearance (including IRB approval), sample processing, and database development.

CENTER INTEGRATION RESOURCE (CIR)

We recognize the diverse nature of translational research projects.  Translational research in human subjects may require a new chemical assay for plasma concentrations of an environmental toxicant.  But translational research could also involve the search for an appropriate mouse model in which to advance a finding that was obtained in cell culture.  Or it could involve the need for a better imaging analysis technology, or a way to screen human blood samples for epigenetic changes.  The CIR is designed to act as a hub for the many experts, technologies, and services offered within the SWEHSC and the broader University of Arizona community.  CIR experts are available to share their expertise to deliver the best analytical approaches and technology using locally available resources where possible.
