Implementation & Dissemination: Translating Clinical Research to Communities Workshop Oct 18, 2011 from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM Brinkhous-Bullitt, Room 219,
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.

Introduction to Participatory Research Approaches Community Workshop- Greensboro Oct 14, 2011 from 10:00 AM to 02:00 PM Moses Cone Memorial Hospital, Classroom 31 (1200 N. Elm St., Greensboro) ,
This workshop is intended to be an introduction to research approaches that involve communities as research partners. The workshop will introduce community-based participatory research (CBPR), and cover the rational, benefits, and challenges of this approach. It will also describe various organizations, institutions and opportunities to help you engage in participatory research.

Impact of Pharmacometrics on Boceprevir and Telaprevir Approvals and HCV Clinical Care Oct 13, 2011 from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM Brinkhous-Bullitt, Room 219,
Boceprevir and telaprevir are novel, direct-acting drugs for hepatitis C treatment recently approved by the FDA for use in patients. Using novel pharmacometric methods, including disease progression and PK/PD modeling, the drugs were approved for use in patient populations and at drug dosages that had not been directly tested in clinical trials. Join the Pharmacometrics Core and the NC TraCS Institute for a Lunch’n’Learn* seminar with Dr. Pravin Jadhav, Pharmacometrics Team Leader at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and Dr. Michael Fried, Director of the UNC Liver Center in a discussion of the approaches used by the FDA to grant approval and the clinical impact of these drugs.
