TRI & me

“As a clinical researcher, I can attest to the excellent TRI resources that helped me implement a clinical trial to test an intervention to slow chronic kidney disease progression. As TRI associate director, it’s exciting that more and more UAMS investigators are accessing TRI resources as TRI maintains its commitment to continuous quality improvement. It’s also gratifying to see TRI integrate new resources into UAMS’ research spheres. Through its many programs, TRI is helping UAMS investigators address the health needs of Arkansas’ diverse, rural population. Its work benefits our researchers and the communities we serve, and the result is like a ship sailing through smooth waters.”
