CTSA Trial Innovation Network

The Trial Innovation Network is a resource for investigators to request consultations and services for multi-center clinical trials and studies. The goal of the network is to provide a new model for clinical trials and a flexible resource that allows investigators to chose from a menu of consultations and services. Some consultations may be selected for further development into clinical protocols that may be implemented in the network. The CTSA Trial Innovation Network is a new NIH initiative composed of CTSA Hubs, the Trial Innovation Centers, and the Recruitment Innovation Center. 


The Network’s vision is to address critical roadblocks in clinical trials and accelerate translation of novel interventions into therapies.  Features of the Trial Innovation Network include: a single IRB system; quality by design approaches; master contracting agreements; and strategies for patient recruitment.
