Clinical Coordinating Center for Multi-Site Investigator-Initiated Clinical Trials (Collaborative UG3/UH3)

Research Objectives

Proposed clinical trials may utilize a design anywhere along the continuum between explanatory and pragmatic. For this FOA, pragmatic trials are considered those that test an intervention under the usual clinical conditions in which it will be applied, while explanatory trials do so under more idealized circumstances. The trial design should be appropriate for the study question.

This CCC FOA runs in parallel with a companion FOA (PAR-16-301) that encourages applications for a collaborating Data Coordinating Center (DCC). Both a CCC application and a collaborating DCC application must be submitted on the same due date for consideration by NHLBI. CCC applications submitted without a collaborative DCC (U24) application will be deemed incomplete and will not proceed to review.
