Listening Tour: Health Equity and Racial Justice
Oct 27 @ 8:30 am – 10:00 am

Conducted by Brownsyne Tucker Edmonds, MD, MPH, MS and Sylk Sotto, EdD, MPS, MBSA, co-leads for the Indiana CTSI’s Health Equity and Racial Justice Taskforce, focused on research and leadership endeavors.

The Indiana CTSI is dedicated to improving the health of Indiana, but it’s become increasingly recognized that health also has many structural and social determinants.  The COVID pandemic and recent national events have emphasized the need to not only understand the racial and ethnic disparities of those affected, but also to identify successful interventions to improve these well recognized issues that contribute to inequity.

Join us as we discuss how to apply the lenses of equity, diversity, and inclusion to current structures, policies, and programs as well as planning for future initiatives.

Please come prepared to discuss your campus, program, or school’s DEI efforts structured around a ‘SOAR’ (Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, Results ) Analysis. 

Consider the following:

With respect to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion . . .

  • What are the [campus, program, school, organization’s] strengths?
  • Which opportunities exist for the [campus, program, school, organization]?
  • What would an ideal vision for the future of the [campus, program, school, organization]  look like?
  • Which measurable results would show that the future vision has been reached?

BioCrossroads Frameworx: The Importance of Vaccines
Oct 27 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Vaccines are one of the hottest topics in the news right now, especially as flu season starts and the development of a vaccine for COVID-19 continues. Indiana has a rich legacy of bringing important vaccines to market. From the polio vaccine, where seven Indiana counties participated in a clinical trial while Eli Lilly and Company raced to mass produce the lifesaving vaccine, to the IU School of medicine playing a critical role in the clinical trials and development of Gardasil, a vaccine for HPV.

As a follow-on to the Indiana Life Sciences Summit on COVID-19, the next Frameworx event will provide an overview of the role vaccines play in reducing and eliminating diseases and in reducing the severity of conditions such as HPV, polio and the seasonal flu.

In this session, we will hear from Dr. Virginia A. Caine, Director and Chief Medical Officer of the Marion County Public Health Department.  She’ll be talking about the importance of herd immunity, vaccine rollout plans and the health benefits for the general population.

We’ll also learn more about Indiana’s expertise in vaccine development, the outreach needed for a controversial prevention and a move toward global behavioral acceptance and compliance.

Training: iConnect for Researchers @ Zoom
Oct 28 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Learn how to use iConnect to assist with research participant recruitment!
The Indiana CTSI’s iConnect, a tool to assist researchers with disseminating information about their studies to the public through web-assisted outreach, allows investigators to improve online awareness of their studies, communicate with interested participants, and monitor recruitment metrics. The Indiana CTSI is providing training on this tool to research teams so they may set up and manage their study information directly. [See iConnect in action here.]

Register here.

Contact Info:
For general inquiries, please contact the All IN For Health Admin Team (inhealth@iu.edu)
For questions about iConnect training or user accounts, please contact Keier Dante kdante@iu.edu

Understanding the pandemic: 10-week series
Oct 29 @ 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Understanding the pandemic: 10-week series will break down COVID-19 for the lay person

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone in some way, but many people may not fully understand how the virus is spreading, its impact on communities or the effort to track and contain the spread. The Indiana Pandemic Information Collaborative (IPIC) is helping to answer those questions for the public.

The 10-week online series will discuss COVID-19 for those who do not have a background in medicine or public health. Topics will include:

  • how vaccines are developed
  • why the virus has been so hard to track and contain
  • the outcome of using masks
  • how to prepare for the next outbreak

Experts from the field will teach each session. Sessions are online, each Thursday from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Register here.

Chemical Genomics Core Facility seminar: CRISPR-based screening
Oct 30 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The IU School of Medicine Chemical Genomics Core Facility (CGCF) is planning web-based tutorials and seminar presentations about some of their new services.

The first event will be on Friday, October 30 at 4 pm. It will be about CRISPR-based screening by Jingwei Meng, PhD.

CRISPR screening is a genetic loss-of-function approach that identifies the genes in a particular pool, such as DNA Damage Response (229 genes), Protein Kinases (746 genes), or Transcription factors (1580 genes), which are responsible for the phenotype of your interests. Chemical Genomics Core researchers will assist you with experimental design, CRISPR library selection, high-throughput equipment training and usage. In this seminar, Meng will present the usage of current DNA Damage Response library in two of recent screening projects and explain the existing standard protocols for such arrayed CRISPR screening at CGCF. The CGCF is currently collecting potential CRISPR-related projects and closely working with IU Genome Editing Center (IUGEC) to bring researchers an integrated service suite of genome technology.
