1 Yale Center for Clinical Investigation: From the lab, to the clinic to the community Brown Bag Luncheon Series: Presentation Tesheia H. Johnson, MBA, MHS Wednesday, April 22 12:00pm The Anlyan Center (TAC) N107 auditorium

2 Lack of comprehensive training for fellows and faculty Lack of appropriate infrastructure to facilitate clinical and translational studies The Problems Facing Clinical Research at Yale in 2004

3 Strategic Plan Recommendations from the Clinical and Population-Based Research Committee Create a centralized structure to support clinical and population-based research Improve information systems to support data collection, training, and processes of clinical research Integrate institutional expertise in clinical care, clinical research, and basic research in an ongoing planning process Develop metrics to refine and plan institutional efforts in clinical and population-based research The Solution: The Development of the Yale Center for Clinical Investigation (YCCI)

4 Programmatic Goals 1.To develop the next generation of clinical scientists by attracting talented pre- and post-doctoral students and junior faculty members across multiple disciplines; training them in the use of state-of-the-art research tools; giving them the skills to work within complex research teams; and supporting their professional development. 2. To foster the translation of disease-related discoveries from the laboratory into the clinic and then into the community, in a variety of ways: By stimulating the creation of interdisciplinary teams of translational researchers By establishing an organizational and regulatory infrastructure to support clinical studies

13 YCCI: Educational Programs

14 A Comprehensive Training Program for the Next Generation of Clinical and Translational Scientists The Scholars and Mentors are the Educational Centerpiece of YCCI

15 Leadership Team Judy Cho, MD, Co-Director for Education (YCCI Scholar Program, Career Development—Translational Research) Eugene Shapiro, MD, Co-Director for Education, Director of KL-2 Program & Deputy Director Investigative Medicine Program (YCCI Scholar Program, Career Development, KL-2 Program, IMP Program and Teaching and Integration of all Programs—Clinical Research) Joseph Craft, MD, Director of Investigative Medicine Program John Forrest, Jr., MD, T32 Program Director (focus on T32 Program Development & Training Program Integration)

16 YCCI Programmatic Goals To develop a cadre of outstanding researchers in patient-oriented research, and to prepare them to assume leadership roles in academia. To foster the translation of disease-related discoveries from the laboratory to the clinic and then into the community, in a variety of ways:

17 YCCI Educational Programs K Scholars YCCI Scholars Investigative Medicine Program Trainees T32 Trainees

18 YCCI Scholars Junior faculty supported by K Awards or the CTSA Clinically trained physicians seeking PhD Junior faculty or Graduate PhD candidates in nursing, EPH, and Biomedical engineering T32 – Medical, nursing, EPH, and Biomedical engineering seeking a Masters degree

19 YCCI Scholars Does not include 9 pending awards – April 1, 2009

20 YCCI Scholars Diverse Departmental & School Representation Medicine represents 6 different sub-specialties

21 ~ $16.9 Million in Independent Funding by Category for YCCI Scholars

22 New Initiative: Society of YCCI Faculty Mentors for the Training of YCCI Junior Faculty Scholars Faculty members chosen based on the quality of their clinical and translational research and their track records in mentoring young scientists. Each YCCI scholar will have an advisory committee consisting of 2- 3 faculty mentors from this group that cover diverse disciplines related to the scholar’s project. Provision of a small amount research support for participation in the program. 100% Acceptance of Invitations to Participate!

23 Investigative Medicine Program (IMP) The Investigative Medicine Program is a unique training program that leads to a Ph.D. degree in Investigative Medicine. Students undertake thesis work in a variety of disciplines. These include: Evaluating risk factors and interventions for disease using modern concepts in quantitative methods and clinical study design. Exploring the molecular basis for a disease from the laboratory standpoint. Investigating the biochemical, physiologic and genetic basis for disease in the setting of a Clinical Research Center.

24 T32 Program Program Goal To establish a flexible educational program to expand clinical/translational training among predoctoral medical, nursing, M.D./Ph.D. and biomedical engineering students In first two years of the CTSA education component, 18 students have been funded.

25 Master’s Program Masters Program Overseen By YCCI Co-Directors of Research and Yale School of Medicine Office of Education

26 Master’s Program Courses include Epidemiology Biostatistics Drug design (bench to bedside) Practical and Ethical Issues in Clinical/Translational Research Electives

27 New Program Yale Pediatric Faculty Scholar’s Program Goal: To encourage innovative research and collaboration among faculty who do NOT necessarily have 75% protected time for research

28 YCCI: Office of Research Services (ORS) and the Clinical Research Units, including “former GCRC”)

29 Mission of ORS Enhancing and integrating the resources that support the timely development of the highest quality clinical and translational research studies Providing a safe and efficient environment for the implementation and completion of clinical and translational research studies

30 ORS: Increases in Services and Staff

31 Our Progress: Improvements in the Research Timeline These improvements are due to major changes in the review process, the addition of staff trained regulatory staff working with the investigator to prepare better submissions, and the start of the implementation of the new Coeus IRB electronic system for protocol approvals. In the past year the averages days to approval has been reduced by 35 days. Since CTSA award ORS has gone for 51 protocols to the current 118 utilizing its services. * Year 3 Data, excluded one investigator who took 165 days to respond to changes required for submission.

Develop a plan with EPH to assist in the development of an epi-genetics program focused on a specific disease. 4. The areas CTSA considers most critical for the new Director to develop: Data coordinating center for clinical trials Genomics

50 YCCI: Informatics

51 Biomedical Informatics Core Research Support and programmatic goals: Web-accessible databases for collection of research data (Trial DB) Specimen/study tracking system (LIMS, nearly completed) Institutional clinical data repository (Programmatic goal)

52 Biorepository Progress Kevan Herold, M.D., YCCI Biorepository Director Biorepository Committee established. Repository will be used for storage of tissue, peripheral blood cells, DNA, and serum from patients. IRB approved protocol for storage of samples by Yale investigators Jr. Faculty search underway with jointly with Department of Laboratory Medicine caTISSUE (centralized tissue-banking tool) - Michael Krauthammer, M.D., Ph.D. awarded $175,000 NCI contract to contribute to the ongoing caTISSUE development. Software allows flexible clinical and genomic annotations, and multi-site banking. Yale is sharing the content of caTISSUE on caGRID, making Yale part of the overall caBIG effort to accelerate translational research by creating an federated biorepository among caBIG participating institutions. Joint grant with the Yale Cancer Center has been submitted to expand support for the repository for clinical samples

53 YCCI: Community Engagement

54 YCCI Community Engagement

55 YCCI community engagement efforts: Community Alliance for Research and Engagement (CARE) Research and Network collaborations with the Yale School of Nursing Collaboration with the Yale Cancer Center to establish the Connecticut Clinical Oncology Trials Network (CCOT) New Foundation Grant $800K award “Changing Life-Styles for Better Health: a Model Program for Community Health Centers” A Hill Health-Yale joint research study (Tamborlane) Bright Bodies Program

56 YCCI - School of Nursing Community Engagement Efforts: Yale received 1 of 6 Clinical Research Network Feasibility Awards (CRNFAs). Yale University will collaborate with the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse Research Network (APRNet) to create a larger, interdisciplinary, practice-based research network to conduct clinical research studies within the community YCCI will support the APRN network with Pilot funds for demonstration projects and administrative support
