Network Capacity Core

The Network Capacity Core ensures a seamless integration of CTSA Hubs to participate in and carry out multisite high-quality, efficient, compliant, and coordinated clinical trials. This core focuses on implementing a series of enhancements and improvements to our existing clinical research programs and supporting infrastructure by leveraging the Trial Innovation Network (TIN) and its associated Trial Innovation and Recruitment Innovation Centers.

Participant Engagement Program
Services offered include participant engagement consultations, honest broker services, and social media outreach via StudyPages, as well as liaison to the Trial Innovation Network (TIN), a CTSA initiative to support successful multi-site trials. The TIN leverages the talent, expertise, and resources of the CTSA Consortium and acts as a national laboratory to study, understand, and improve multi-site trials.

If you are interested in designing and implementing a clinical research study, please contact the Stanford CTSA Hub Liaison Manager, Maya Berdichesky (mayab2@stanford.edu), to learn more about how Stanford resources and TIN can work with you from initial consultation through trial implementation.
