InCHIP’s New Core Service Structure

At our annual meeting this year, we were very excited to introduce our new Core service structure!

Our new Cores are designed to expand the access and types of services provided here at InCHIP and to have a greater impact as we work with University and beyond!

We have already announced our Biostatistics and Methodology Core and our Intervention Core.

  • The Intervention Core provides expertise and support to researchers across UConn, helping them design, implement, evaluate and disseminate innovative behavioral interventions. Successful interventions are a key step needed to translate health behavior research into actual improvements in people’s health. The Core will give researchers at UConn the ability to leverage InCHIP’s extensive experience in health behavior interventions, and help them develop rigorous, evidence-based interventions that can have a significant impact on the health of people around the world.
  • The goal of the the Biostatistics and Methodology Core is to provide members of the UConn community with the expertise and experience necessary to conduct innovative and statistically rigorous research, and to enable them to compete very successfully for research grants in the health sciences. Members of the UConn community will be able to use the Core to connect with a range of statistics experts, and to establish long-term collaborations for innovative research into health and health behavior.

We are now excited to introduce our Training and development core and our brand new Community Engaged Health Research Core.

  • The Training and Development Core seeks to strengthen the use ofInCHIP as a University resource by offering a clear mechanism that connects faculty to RESEARCH  The core will offer supportive services and training that engage with researchers at every stage in research PROCESS and at every stage in their career via the following means: One-on-One meetings with InCHIP Directors and staff, hosting a mentorship program, hosting training workshops and collaboration events, as well as Grant Incubator Services.
    • The grant incubator will provide topic-specific RESEARCH IDEA AND GRANT DEVELOPMENT support with senior faculty with significant experience in the grant writing process.
    • The Training and Development Core is holding a writing workshop on the NIH Specific Aims section in November and December. Click here for more details and to RSVP.
  • The Community Engaged Health Research Core will assist University researchers with making linkages to community researchers and Community Based Organizations, provide guidance on how to effectively and efficiently conduct community-engaged research, assist with community-engaged strategic and project planning, and provide resources about Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR). The goal of the Community Engaged Health Research Core is to secure a position for UConn as the anchor institution within the greater Hartford area and to help set a tone of mutual respect and benefit for researchers and communities across Connecticut and beyond.

Look out for more details and upcoming events from our new Cores.
