Four projects chosen for funding from the Carolinas Collaborative

October 30, 2018

Duke CTSI is pleased to announce the four inter-institutional teams that have been awarded support for the third cycle of the Carolinas Collaborative program.

The Carolinas Collaborative is managed by Health Sciences South Carolina, and partners with CTSA hubs at Duke U, Medical University of South Carolina, Wake Forest University, and UNC Chapel Hill to encourage and facilitate novel clinical and translational research that applies or accelerates discovery into testing in clinical or population settings. Funding for these awards comes from the four Carolinas CTSA hubs and The Duke Endowment, which have partnered to provide a Common Data Model resource (i2b2/Shrine) to harmonize electronic health data across the institutions, expediting clinical research.

The four projects selected are:

"Optimizing Postpartum Cardiovascular Care in Women with Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy"
Daubert, Melissa, Duke University
Urrutia, Rachel, UNC Chapel Hill

"Development and validation of a multi-center ventilator dependent respiratory failure (VDRF) computable phenotype to facilitate lung protective ventilation research"
Goodwin, Andrew, Medical University of South Carolina
Simpson, Annie, Medical University of South Carolina
Bice, Thomas, UNC Chapel Hill
Files, D. Clark, Wake Forest University
Topaloglu, Umit, Wake Forest University

"Measuring Opioid Use Disorders in Secondary Electronic Health Records Data"
Ranapurwala, Shabbar, UNC Chapel Hill
Wu, Li-Tzy, Duke University
Korte, Jeffrey, Medical University of South Carolina
Wolfson, Mark, Wake Forest University

"Detection of Coronary Artery Calcification in the Lung Cancer Screening Population: Clinical Implications for Cardiovascular Risk Stratification and Statin Pharmacotherapy"
Tailor, Tina, Duke University
Henderson, Louise, UNC Chapel Hill
Chiles, Caroline, Wake Forest University

The Carolinas Collaborative hub at Duke is part of Duke CTSI's Accelerator and Clinical Data Research Networks programs.
