The mission of the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) is to leverage and strengthen the state's life sciences community to achieve better health for people in Indiana. Founded in 2008, the Indiana CTSI is a statewide institute supported by a Clinical and Translational Science Award from the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) and the National Center for Advancing Translational Science and is currently in its third cycle of funding. The Indiana CTSI has research partnerships with Indiana University, Purdue University, and the University of Notre Dame. Furthermore, Indiana CTSI engages with life sciences, businesses and community organizations as well as the public at every level of research from basic science to patient care to implementation and dissemination in the community. The Indiana CTSI has established translational research infrastructure across the state, engaging many new non-academic partners, and developing several collaborative programs with regional, national and global partnerships. It is nationally recognized for its innovative pilot projects and its strong partnerships with agencies in the business, healthcare, public health, governmental, and social services sectors.
The goal of the Indiana CTSI Monon Collaborative is to improve health equity through robust bi-directional and mutually-beneficial partnerships supported through a sustainable infrastructure that houses and promotes innovative and impactful research and service initiatives. The Monon Collaborative has served as the convener between community partners and translational researchers in order to offer 'science in service to the community.' The activities of the Monon Collaborative are rooted in a strong foundation of partnership development, mutual benefit, and trust. Specifically, the Monon Collaborative has partnered with the spectrum of community stakeholders - large (United Way, Goodwill) and small (Shepherd Community Center, faith-based organizations) social services agencies, health systems, government, payers, funders, and many more. Through these partnerships, we will work together to understand the priority health issues and develop approaches to achieve sustainable solutions in meeting the health needs of our communities. The Monon Collaborative team will provide overall direction and operational oversight for this position (Wiehe, Hardwick). This position will focus on a priority area of the Monon Collaborative relating to data analytics and management for both community and academic audiences using a diverse array of data sources.
