The CTC processes Caregiver Background Checks (CBCs) that are required by state law for project research staff and students who conduct research, including observation, in the Wisconsin Early Childhood Program (WECP). The Wisconsin Caregiver Law, licensure requirements, and WECP policy dictate that CBCs must be completed every 12 months. The CBC includes Wisconsin DOJ and DHS Caregiver Check results. Additional fees will apply for individuals who have resided in another state during the past 3 years; rates vary by state. Investigators are responsible for any costs incurred to clarify the status of an individual’s background clearance. Contact CTC Research Coordinator, Carrie Arneson, firstname.lastname@example.org or 608.263.5192 with requests for CBCs.
The CTC processes Fingerprint Background Checks (FBCs) that are required by state law for project research staff and students who conduct research, including observation, in the Wisconsin Early Childhood Program (WECP). The Wisconsin Caregiver Law, licensure requirements, and WECP policy dictate that a one-time FBC must be completed. The FBC includes FBI, Wisconsin DOJ, and DHS Caregiver Check results, which meets the annual CBC requirement above. Investigators are responsible for any costs incurred to clarify the status of an individual’s background clearance. Contact CTC Research Coordinator, Carrie Arneson, email@example.com or 608.263.5192 with requests for CBCs.
Databases that are developed by the CTC can be hosted on a CTC-managed server for a monthly fee (rate not available for subsidy). The server is on the University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Information Technology (DoIT)'s restricted data network, with encrypted back-ups occurring nightly. Users can access the database using a custom domain name, with access restricted by UW-Madison NetID, if desired. Direct requests and inquiries regarding database hosting to the CTC Engineer, Rob Olson, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608.890.3075.

The Personalized Medicine Research Project (PMRP) of the Marshfield Clinic offers a population-based bio-bank with DNA, plasma and serum linked to nearly complete electronic health records that span an average of 30 years. There are currently over 20,000 participants currently enrolled. Recruitment for PMRP was primarily from geographic areas comprising the Marshfield Epidemiologic Study Area, a defined geographic region of 24 zip codes surrounding the main Marshfield Clinic campus and selected regional centers throughout central and northern Wisconsin. Vast amounts of genomic data are available for PMRP participants. All PMRP participants have been genotyped for over 50 medically relevant makers that also serve as a fingerprint. PMRP contains 70 million individual data items (including every lab test) on the cohort. Epidemiological studies of IDD conditions, investigations of genotype-phenotype correlations, studies of the association of environmental exposures and IDD conditions, and other novel research can be pursued using these extremely valuable data. Visit http://www.marshfieldresearch.org/chg/pmrp for more information.
