CTSI expands informatics team

Gretchen Sieger and Kathleen McKay, PhD, recently joined CTSI’s Informatics Consulting Service (ICS), which helps investigators efficiently and effectively leverage data and information for their health research.

Both will support requests for data from the University of Minnesota’s clinical data repository.  

Gretchen Sieger came to CTSI from the University’s Transplant Information Services, where she worked assisting researchers with data retrieval and analysis for the last 14 years. She has significant experience in working with data from Fairview’s electronic health records.   

Adding these two professionals significantly increases ICS's capacity and skill set to assist researchers in finding and understanding the data available in the clinical data repository and other available resources to help address their research questions.
