NIH introduces new resources for multi-site clinical trials and research studies

The NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences has launched a Trial Innovation Network that provides infrastructure and resources to multi-site clinical trials and research studies.

Currently, NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award program sites, including the Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute, are serving as local hubs in the network. OCTRI’s research team will support OHSU investigators in designing multi-center research, as well as providing information on national resources available through the network. They will be hosting an information session as well:

Trial Innovation Network: An information session
Monday, April 10
12 to 1 p.m.
Mackenzie Hall, room 1115

The goal of the Trial Innovation Network is to address barriers to launching multi-site clinical trials and research projects, including trial-expediency and cost-efficiency. The network will also serve as a national laboratory for understanding and innovating the process of conducting clinical trials.

Contact Kitt Swartz, OCTRI Trial Innovation Network project manager, to set up a time to discuss your research or to have general questions answered.
