CRC Luncheon
NC TraCS has been working diligently with other offices on campus to help facilitate the conduct of clinical research studies here at UNC. Join us for a FREE lunch so that we can share with you projects that have been completed and those that are in progress. These projects have been developed to improve clinical research processes here on campus. Topics to be discussed during the luncheon include but not limited to: · Coordinating Training for clinical research personnel sponsored by the IRB, OCT, and NC TraCS · Clinical Research Awareness Days in the Hospitals · Searchable Clinical Research Study database for general public · Designated space in the hospital and rules for posting study advertisements (per UNC Healthcare) · Processing of incoming calls from potential study volunteers · Current UNC Healthcare clinical trial listing site transition to NC TraCS · Clinical Research Management System (CRMS) updates—including online submissions

Investigator Responsibilities in Clinical Trials: Practical Applications of Good Clinical Practices
This 3 ½ hour short course is targeted at principal investigators who are responsible for providing oversight and ensuring that Good Clinical Practices are followed in their research studies. Attendees will learn best practices for how to handle issues that arise in the daily conduct of research studies and how to handle these issues in compliance with GCP. Attendees will also hear examples presented by UNC investigators who are responsible for implementing GCP in their own research projects.

Next-Generation PostLight Sequencing With Semiconductor Chips
We invite you to join Dr. Jeremy Stuart of Life Technologies, to discuss next-generation PostLight™ sequencing with semiconductor chips. Ion Torrent has developed the world’s first semiconductor-based DNA sequencing technology, directly translating chemical information into digital data. DNA sequencing is performed with all natural nucleotides on Ion’s proprietary semiconductor chips, leveraging a billion years of evolution and a trillion dollars of investment to allow unprecedented scalability, speed, and costs according to Moore’s Law. Because Ion Torrent technology doesn't use light, it vastly reduces the cost and time of sequencing while still delivering next-generation sequencing throughputs. This may democratize the field of next-generation sequencing and have important implications for clinical, diagnostic, and research applications in which speed is of paramount significance.

Bench to Bedside Translational Research Workshop
Translational research describes the effort to move findings from the lab bench to practice at the bedside and in the community. Research that is relevant to human health has an increasing advantage when reviewers evaluate the significance and impact of a research proposal. This session will describe how some faculty embarked on research programs that are translational. The presentation will focus on how to develop a translational research project, how to convince a reviewer that your research is translational, and where to find the resources for the necessary pilot studies to acquire critical preliminary data.

BioEntrepreneur Workshop
The BioEntrepreneur Workshop is designed to help faculty and students learn the practical aspects starting a biomedical/life science company. Over the course of this two-day workshop, experienced entrepreneurs will coach attendees on how to evaluate the commercial potential of their technology, define the first steps in starting a company and assemble a startup roadmap for taking the next steps in launching the company.

Implementation & Dissemination: Translating Clinical Research to Communities Workshop
Clinical trials conducted in academic health centers (AHCs) are critical for the generation of the evidence base. Although typically well controlled, such trials may not reflect the diverse demography of the US, particularly in regard to vulnerable populations. Community translation research begins with understanding methods that drive evidence-based findings, which are then modified to take into account culture, customs, language, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, insurance status or other factors that describe populations not often enrolled in clinical trials at AHCs. The translational research process may be qualitative or quantitative, and often involves implementation research that explores novel methods that bridge barriers to vulnerable populations, or dissemination research, that leads to the generation of novel tools or products that may be widely disseminated.
