Trial Innovation Network

The Trial Innovation Network (TIN) is a collaborative initiative within the CTSA Program. It is composed of three key organizational partners – the CTSA Program Hubs, the Trial Innovation Centers (TIC) and the Recruitment Innovation Center (RIC). The TIN is designed to support innovation in multi-center clinical trials and studies.

The vision of the TIN is to innovatively address critical roadblocks in multi-center clinical trials and to accelerate the translation of novel interventions into life-saving therapies. The TIN is a collaborative national group that focuses on operational innovationoperational excellence and collaboration and will leverage the expertise and resources of the CTSA Program. The TIN plans to feature a single IRB system, master contracting agreements, quality by design approaches, and a focus on evidence-based strategies to recruitment and patient engagement.

The goal of the TIN is to not only execute trials better, faster, and more cost-efficiently; but to also be a national laboratory to study, understand and innovate the process of conducting clinical trials.

The investigators are currently building the key elements of the TIN. The goal is to start early projects as soon as possible and to collaborate with other NIH institutes and partners to launch clinical trials in 2018.
