This Webinar will present NHLBI’s efforts to optimize its clinical trials enterprise by working with its investigator community to foster trial success and maximize the benefits of this research to society and public health. The Webinar will highlight a new initiative to facilitate the conduct and management of clinical trials by establishing early on clear milestones and metrics of progress through the Institute’s Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) – the notices by which NHLBI solicits applications for research from its investigator community. Specifically, presenters in this webinar will describe the specific performance milestones and metrics to be included in applications for multi-site clinical trials (Phase II and above), and will answer investigator questions about NHLBI’s new approach, with an eye toward helping them prepare the best applications possible.
