Do you have a dream multi-center study? At Tufts CTSI, we have a unique, time-limited opportunity to access substantial resources and support to run multi-center studies. Through a new program, the Trial Innovation Network
, the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS)
will invest in clinical research infrastructure to support protocol development and study initiation. This includes things like establishing a Data Coordinating Center (DCC) and Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB), developing an analytic plan, writing and implementing recruitment plans, and nearly everything else that goes into running a multi-center study.
Through a recent award from NCATS, Tufts CTSI-affiliated investigators have a chance to get early access to these resources.
Your protocol does not need to be complete - you just need to have a good idea that is somewhat developed. The drawback? A short proposal is due on Wednesday, December 7
If you have been contemplating a study, wishing resources would suddenly become available to help make it a reality, this could be your chance.
Please review our Trial Innovation Network web page
, then contact Director of Clinical Research Operations Edward Kuczynski, MA
or Lead Navigator Daniel Weiner, MD, MS
for more information. PLEASE NOTE: investigators are not permitted to submit a proposal without prior approval.
