Welcome to The Vanderbilt Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (VICTR ) website

Resources Available for Investigators

A primary goal of  VICTR and its Community Engagement and Research Program (CERP) is to bring together academic and community partners to improve community health through research. We seek to develop transformative collaborative structures and strategies that will bring Vanderbilt clinical and translational investigators together with academic and community partners to shape and support innovative and community-engaged research. Below is a list of VICTR resources available to academic and community partners. Some require collaboration with a VU investigator; others do not:

VICTR Clinical/Translational Research Center (in/out patient nursing care/facilities)
Community Resources (investigator consultation: planning, design, analysis)
Pilot Funding (funds for pilot and preliminary data)
Synthetic Derivative (de-identified data from Vanderbilt's electronic medical record)
Database Management (easy to use research database and survey tool)
Expert Consults (individual consultation with experts)
Studios (structured, dynamic sessions with research experts)

Resources Available for Vanderbilt and Meharry Investigators

The VICTR and CTSA provide support for a wide variety of resources that are available to Vanderbilt faculty and some shared resources that are available to Meharry faculty. To learn more about resources that are available, including access to research funding, core resources, expert consultations, regulatory support, access to templates, database development software, educational requirements and opportunities and more, visit StarBRITE, an interactive system that provides one stop shopping for many of your research needs (requires a VUNet ID and password for access).

NOTE: VICTR Scientific Review Committee (VICTR SRC) review is required for all projects proposing the use of VICTR funding or support for research activities assoicated with an individual protocol. The committee reviews assure scientific merit and research design, including statistical soundness, and determine if the research proposed aligns with VICTR's mission and goals.
