CincY as a Treatment for Creatine Transporter Defect

Project: Research project

Project Details


The Overarching Goal of the Indiana Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) is to transformthe
Darticipating institutions to create an environment that facilitates the conduct of biomedical research.
Mission Statement:
To increase translational biomedical research and improve the health of the people of Indiana and beyond.
To this end, we have developed new mechanisms to acceleratetranslational research, including enhanced
educational programs to train translational researchers,a newly designed community engagement activity to
produce effective and bidirectional community partnerships, streamlining of all available research infra-
structure to acceleratetranslational projects,and partnering with commercial and philanthropic organizations
in Indiana. Throughout all of these efforts runs the critical link of our medical informatics program, enabling
all parties to interact in a facile and responsive and prompt manner. Thus, the Indiana CTSI brings together
the resourcesof an entire state. In short, it will provide to the national network of CTSAs:
A true statewide laboratory to experiment with innovative methods aimed at transforming researchin
biomedical sciences, health economy, health care delivery, and health policy.
The 5 Specific goals of the Indiana CTSI:
I. Create Translational Research Acceleration Programsand Support Pilot Projects by providing
investigators and consumers with strategic leadership and mentorship to identify, evaluate, and support
innovative and important pilot researchat each step of the translational cycle. . Train a new cadre of Translational Researchersby strengthening existing programs and creating new
ones to educate trainees and engage faculty in the translational sciences.
HI. Foster Robust Community Engagement by creating novel programs with bidirectional participation (i.e.,
from academia to the community and back again), such as the Indiana Community Health Enhancement
Program (CHEP) and pilot programs in Health Econmics, and Rural and Global Health.
IV. Build Facile and Comprehensive Research Resourcesand Technologies by transforming the existing and
new research infrastructure into innovative programssuch as the Participant and Clinical Interaction
Resources (PCIR), Translational Technology Resources(TTR). Research Ethics, Biostatistics and Design
Program (BDP), and uniquely, biomedical engineering and bio-nanotechnology to facilitate health research.
V. Leverage the Resources of the Greater Indiana Community by connecting to a broad array of resources
from multiple partner institutions throughout the state to realize the full potential of the Indiana CTSI.
