Abstract:

Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs) support a new initiative funded by the National Institutes of Health. Within the consortium a workgroup of members from each CTSA will focus on methods to integrate biostatistics, epidemiology, and research design (BERD) into clinical and translational science research programs within and across CTSA institutions; encourage the identification and implementation of best practices relating to BERD among institutions; and identify and develop plans to overcome existing barriers to major gains in efficiency in the national clinical research and training efforts. Panel members will briefly present approaches being implemented for a variety of CTSA responsibilities, partnerships, and challenges. Discussion with the audience will follow to explore the extent to which it makes sense to harmonize, communicate, and share across institutions.
