TRI & me

“I learned about the Translational Research Institute (TRI) soon after I arrived at the Department of Biomedical Informatics in 2016. We quickly became partners in making clinical data resources more accessible to all UAMS researchers. Together we established a new, self-service user interface for researchers to query and identify study cohorts from the Arkansas Clinical Data Repository (AR-CDR). With TRI as our partner, we were able to streamline the process of requesting clinical data for research studies and have enabled UAMS researchers and faculty to conduct high quality, timely and efficient clinical and translational research. More information about the AR-CDR is available at: AR-CDR.uams.edu or TRI.uams.edu.”
