Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful. - Samuel Johnson
This blog is dedicated to the University of Vermont Center for Clinical and Translational Science and especially its Education and Career Development Programs. We hope it will be a useful tool for CTS faculty, Graduate Students and Faculty Scholars to keep in touch, share ideas, create community, and do science.
Please join me in congratulating Sarah Gillett. Her abstract, "Inflammation and Risk of Cognitive Decline in Black and White Americans in the Reasons for Geographic And Racial Differences in Stroke (REGARDS) Study," has been accepted for an oral presentation at the Joint Conference - Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Metabolism and Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology and Prevention 2011 Scientific Sessions, scheduled March 22 -25, 2010 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, Georgia.
This is wonderful news. Congratulations Sarah!

Next week we will begin forwarding, via email, IRB correspondence from the InfoEd system. To help you identify these emails, the subject line will begin with the word "IRB" followed by the protocol number. Example below:
IRB Clarification for M10-001
IRB Continuing Review for M10-001 and so on
Please do not disregard these emails as we will not be sending hard copies of the correspondence that have been emailed to you.
You may reply via email to any correspondence that you have received via email from us. However, at this time, any new submissions of any type still require paper copies to be submitted for review due to limitations of the current version of our software. Paper submission instructions are located on our forms web page at: http://www.uvm.edu/~iacuc/?Page=iacucforms/iacucforms.html
Thank you and please don't hesitate to contact us with any problems or concerns. The earlier we are made aware of any problems with this process the sooner we can address them.
