Core Clinical Centers for the Cardiothoracic Surgical Trials Network Program
Page 2

Since its establishment, the network has been working towards various activities that are associated with surgical trials, but has also encountered unfortunate challenges and concerns in the process.

Just like other surgical trials, the CTSN has faced quite a number of hurdles although current trials are anticipated to complete enrollment within the initial grant budget, there remains to be a strong need for better approaches to identify, recruit, randomize, and retain patients and logistically manage the cardiothoracic trials.

As a result, the funding agencies decided to launch the program in focus, hoping to solicit for experienced Core Clinical Centers (CCCs) that possess the ability to propose and execute innovative strategies to successfully operate trials within the purview of the CTSN.

The successful applicants of this program will be joining the network for a maximum period of 5 years and will be granted annual funds in the amount of $4,040,000.

The organizations and institutions who will be assumed eligible to submit an application under this program are the following:

a) Public/State Controlled Institutions of Higher Education
and Private Institutions of Higher Education

b) Nonprofit Organizations and Institutions

c) For-profit Organizations Such as Small Businesses

d) State and County Governments

e) City or Township Governments

f) Independent School Districts

g) Faith-based or Community-based Organizations
