What Is the Clinical Trial Design Center?

Clinical Trial Design Center (CTDC) is led by Drs. Chimowitz and Palesch. The CTDC staff will meet with investigators to help design multi-site trials and consult on statistics and data management. Additionally, Drs. Chimowitz and Palesch and SCTR staff will advise investigators on how to navigate the agencies involved (e.g., NIH, CMS, FDA), interact with industry partners, and prepare the trial budget.
