• About Us

    Community involvement in research builds trust, encourages participation among under-represented groups, and enhances the relevance of research findings.

  • Buffalo Research Registry

    Breakthroughs in medical treatments help millions of people live happier, healthier, more productive lives. Most of us have personally benefited from research in some way even if we don’t realize it.

  • Community Seed Grants

    CTSI seed grants support the planning of community-based participatory research partnerships and engagement of communities on research teams.

  • Community Engagement Studios

    The studio model uses a structured approach to bring researchers and members of the community together, face-to-face (or virtually), to discuss research studies.

The CTSI Community Engagement Core seeks to improve the health of Western New York residents through the alignment of community, research and training priorities with the goal of quickly assimilating findings from evidence-based research into clinical and community practice.
