Trial Innovation Network

The Translational Research Institute (TRI) is part of the national Trial Innovation Network. This is a new collaborative effort within the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program aimed at executing trials better, faster, and more cost-efficiently with an emphasis on being a national laboratory to study, understand and innovate the process of conducting clinical trials.

The vision for the Trial Innovation Network is to “innovatively address critical roadblocks in clinical trials and accelerate the translation of novel interventions into life-saving therapies.”

The Trial Innovation Network is seeking your proposals. Submit your proposal (requires filling out a brief registration form).
