Opportunities to bring your voice to research at the University of Utah


Collaboration and Engagement Team at the Center for Clinical & Translational Science at the University of Utah School of Medicine, is currently recruiting community members to bring their voice to the following projects. Community member input will strengthen and reshape the way clinical research is implemented in our community.


A Community/Patient Engagement Studio is a structured process for researchers to obtain a consultation with community “experts” - individuals who can speak for their broader community. It is designed for researchers who have specific questions and want to obtain advice on how best to proceed with an aspect(s) of their research project. A consultation on ways to increase enrollment in clinical trials and ways to address barriers/challenges would be an excellent and appropriate use for a Studio.
