Indiana CTSI Using New Grant Management Software

The Indiana CTSI is now using the WebCAMP (Web-based Center Administrative Management Program) software system to support our internal funding programs, as do many other hubs funded through the NIH’s Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program.
WebCAMP will be used to manage grant submissions, review processes, and longitudinal progress report tracking in one system and will provide easier access for all users.
WebCAMP was originally developed through funding from the National Center for Research Resources and is currently supported and enhanced by the Weill Cornell Medicine CTSC in collaboration with the national network of CTSA hubs that use the software.

3D Bioprinting Core Gains CTSI Designation, NIH Funding

The 3D Bioprinting Core at IUPUI and IU School of Medicine recently received two major boosts: Indiana CTSI core designation and funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to cover the cost of its main bioprinting instrument.
The 3D Bioprinting Core’s Regenova bioprinter
Indiana CTSI-designated cores have demonstrated quality oversight, users that span departments and schools, processes to monitor user satisfaction and established policies for publication and confidentiality. The designation also allows investigators to apply to the core for Indiana CTSI pilot grant funding for their research.
The 3D Bioprinting Core also was awarded an NIH S10/Shared Instrument Grant to fund its...

Purdue Study Finds Chemical-Weapon Antidote Shows Early Promise As Spinal Cord Injury Treatment

Indiana CTSI-supported research by Purdue University investigators has found that a Word War II-era chemical-weapon antidote shows early promise as a new treatment for spinal cord injuries.
Riyi Shi, a professor of neuroscience and biomedical engineering at Purdue, and Ran Tian, a graduate student at Purdue’s Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, discovered that the antidote, a drug called dimercaprol, is effective at suppressing a neurotoxin that worsens the pain and severity of spinal cord injuries.
