Comprehensive views and trending data of body composition are valuable in clinical research and practical applications when investigating diseases that affect bone mineral content and soft tissue. A number of conditions exist where capturing body composition and bone mineral content is significant for further understanding...

The Zablocki VA Medical Center Translational Research Unit (V-TRU) is a resource for clinical investigators working with both veterans and non-veterans. Located on the fifth floor of the Veteran’s Medical Center, the unit consists of three fully equipped exam rooms and a laboratory specimen processing...

The Faculty Collaboration Database (FCD) is a collection of profiles of MCW faculty and is funded by the Office of Research, Medical College of Wisconsin and the Clinical and Translational Institute of Southeast Wisconsin (CTSI).  As of 2011 CTSI faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee...

Nutrition plays an undeniable role in many of the chronic illnesses researchers work hard to prevent, treat and cure.  Through nutritional genomics, we have learned diet substituents metabolize differently depending on genetic variations and investigations have begun into how diets can cause genetic variations, many...

The CTSI Wiki is a place where CTSI members tasks with continued progress and development can connect, communicate and collaborate with each other. It breaks down information barriers that can exist between teams, departments and individuals and removes geographic barriers too.  As a central location...

As key partners in the CTSI of Southeast Wisconsin, the IRBs have been working on making the IRB review process between institutions more efficient. A pathway for considering a coordinated IRB review has been developed for research that will be conducted at more than one...

The Research Participant Advocate (RPA) is available to assist in protecting the safety and confidentiality of the research participants who volunteer for clinical studies. The RPA is a resource for potential research volunteers and a liaison and consultant to research teams. Learn more...

Researchers and clinicians within the CTSI have access to a unique and valuable resource for their prototyping needs. Rapid prototyping allows for the automatic fabrication of an object directly from a Computer Aided Design (CAD) data source using manufacturing techniques.  The Rapid Prototyping Center (RPC) at...

In order to foster translation of novel inventions to translational practice, the Clinical and Translational Science Institute in collaboration with the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Marquette University, the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Milwaukee School of Engineering and the Biotechnology and Bioengineering Center at...

The Exercise Science Program in the College of Health Sciences at Marquette University is a subset of the Physical Therapy Department. Exercise science is the study of human movement and the adaptations that occur due to exercise training. Researchers in this field utilize physiological approaches...

Every day research scholars and clinicians around the world generate considerable amounts of biomedical data. The data is produced in multiple formats, including natural languages, medical/biological images, proteomic, and gene expression from various tissues and cell lines. It is impossible for any human being to...

Proteins come in numerous sizes and shapes. A protein's structure is important in understanding its function. In order to determine the structure, researchers can use a technique called X-ray crystallography. Fundamentally, X-ray crystallography is a way to take pictures of proteins, thereby providing researchers with...
