TIN is a collaborative partnership with investigators at the 60+ hubs in the national Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) network. The vision is to innovatively address critical roadblocks in multi-site clinical research studies and accelerate the translation of novel interventions into life-saving therapies. TIN provides resources to assist in protocol development, grant submissions, study operations enhancement, trial budgeting guidance, regulatory agreements, data safety & monitoring, data and clinical coordination & management, single IRB, site identifications and more.


Clinical investigators are encouraged to contact their local CTSA team to learn more about this opportunity to help materialize innovative ideas into multi-site clinical trials.
