Biomedical & Clinical Research Support

Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) is a rapidly evolving web tool developed by researchers for researchers in the translational domain.

REDCap features a high degree of customizability for your forms and advanced user right control. It also features free, unlimited survey functionality, a sophisticated export module with support for all the popular statistical programs, and supports HIPAA compliance.

Due to access, scope, and customizations between REDCap installations, we can only provide support to researchers using the UW REDCap instance hosted by ITHS. REDCap access is restricted to researchers in the WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho) region or those collaborating with researchers at the UW or partner institutions.

Clinical Research Support

Clinical Research Support

ITHS offers access to a number of research units to support the work of investigators.

The Adult Translational Research Unit (TRU) offers investigators the support and infrastructure needed to conduct research, including access to dedicated inpatient and outpatient facilities, specially trained nurses and support staff, laboratory services, and state-of-the-art equipment.

The Pediatric Clinical Research Center (PCRC) at Seattle Children’s Research Institute provides an environment and resources for the multidisciplinary conduct of clinical research in children less than 21 years of age.

The Regional Clinical Dental Research Center (RCDRC) provides facilities and resources for research relevant to the pathogenesis, diagnosis, early detection, prevention, control, and treatment of oral diseases, disorders, and/or dysfunctions. The RCDRC has two large dental research operatories, a biomedical wet lab, sterilization facilities, and space for clinical research support staff.

The Gene and Cell Therapy Lab (GCTL), a cGMP facility, provides translational researchers with the infrastructure, training, and technical expertise necessary to develop and manufacture gene-modified cells, vector production, and ex-vivo manipulation of cells for novel gene and cell therapy products.
