CTSA NCATS ACT Supplement
Enhancing accrual to clinical trials is a national priority. NCATS has approved a supplement to our parent CTSA grant to lead an effort to link the 60 CTSA sites. Pittsburgh (Ries), Harvard (Nadler) and UT Southwestern (Toto) as CTSA PIs along with Harvard (McFadden) and Pittsburgh (Becich/Visweswaran) will create an informatics infrastructure using custom programming to i2b2 and SHRINE to accomplish this important goal. 22 CTSA sites participate in this effort.
