UIC Center for Clinical and Translational Science (UIC CCTS)

The CCTS includes five research service cores: Design and Analysis, Clinical Interface, Biomedical Informatics, Regulatory Support , Advocacy and Community-Engagement. These cores facilitate the work of new and current clinical translational investigators.

UIC Institute for Health Research and Policy (IHRP)

IHRP stimulates and supports a broad range of high-quality research to improve health practices and policies in metropolitan Chicago, throughout the state of Illinois, and beyond.

UIC Office for the Protection of Research Subjects (OPRS)

OPRS provides administrative support for the review and approval of research protocols (experiments) involving humans and human embryonic stem cells . OPRS ensures that investigators adhere to regulations for the protection and welfare of subjects, investigators, and the University.


National Organizations

Community Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH)

CCPH is a nonprofit organization that promotes health through partnerships between communities and academic institutions.


US Department of Health and Human Services

Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP)

OHRP helps ensure this by providing clarification and guidance, developing educational programs and materials, maintaining regulatory oversight, and providing advice on ethical and regulatory issues in biomedical and social-behavioral research.

National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical and Translational Science Award Program (CTSA)

The NIH CTSA program enables innovative research teams to speed discovery and advance science aimed at improving our nation's health. The program encourages collaborative teams of diverse investigators to tackle complex health and research challenges and then find ways to turn their discoveries into practical solutions for patients.


Journals

Progress in Community Health Partnerships: Research, Education, and Action

PCHP is a national, peer-reviewed journal whose mission is to identify and publicize model programs that use community partnerships to improve public health, promote progress in the methods of research and education involving community health partnerships, and stimulate action that will improve the health of people and communities.

Journal of Empirical Research on Human Research Ethics

JERHRE publishes empirical research and reviews of empirical literature on human research ethics. Empirical knowledge translates ethical principles into procedures appropriate to specific cultures, contexts, and research topics. JERHRE published many articles on community-engaged research and holds related conferences.
