Clinical and translational investigators at Harvard use the web portal and its numerous applications to learn about Harvard Catalyst’s programs and services, register or apply for funding, training, courses, consultations, or events, and access important information or services to facilitate their research.  Many aspects of the web portal are also open to the general public.

Below are a few of the many tools available on the web portal:

  • Advanced Curriculum Compendium
  • Apply Hub
  • Core Facilities
  • Education Video Library
  • Elements of Grant Writing
  • Events
  • Harvard Catalyst Profiles
  • Harvard Trials
  • IRB Ceded Review Request
  • IssueMaker
  • Pathfinder
  • REDCap

The web portal team is also involved in several collaborative efforts, including IRBrely, a reciprocal IRB reliance system for large multi-site clinical studies. For more information, see the Collaborations section below.

Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about our software.

Collaborations

CARRAnet (Childhood Arthritis and Rhematological Research Alliance), funded principally by NIAMS, is employing SHRINE to assemble the largest to date registry of pediatric patients with rheumatic disease across a 60 site network. In addition, CARRAnet is piloting the IRBrely reciprocal IRB reliance system for large multi-site clinical studies in collaboration with the Web Portal team. The CARRA Registry is an observational retrospective and prospective cohort study that enrolls children and adolescents with major rheumatic diseases followed at participating study sites.

In September 2012, the Web Portal team launched a new drupal-based website for the immunology community at Harvard. This community’s people and resources are spread across many centers and departments at Harvard and its academic health centers.   The Harvard Immunology website provides a window into this rich but disparate community, revealing the breadth and depth of their expertise. Its People & Labs tool expands upon Harvard Catalyst Profiles by providing a means for students and staff to add themselves to the community while faculty and fellows are automatically included. eagle-i integration provides a rich environment for finding and sharing resources.
