The Johns Hopkins University-Tufts Trial Innovation Center (TIC)

BIOS and the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) have been awarded a seven-year, $25 million grant from the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) to form, along with Tufts University School of Medicine, one of three Trial Innovation Centers (TICs).

The goal of the centers is to promote innovations in the efficiency and quality of NIH-funded trials. The centers are part of the NCATS Trial Innovation Network and will work with the national Clinical and Translational Science Program, which funds a consortium of 64 medical research institutions in 31 states and the District of Columbia. The centers will help the institutions form a long-standing infrastructure for multicenter studies to be funded by NIH and other funding agencies.

Daniel F. Hanley, M.D., the Jeffrey and Harriet Legum Professor of Acute Neurological Medicine and director of Brain Injury Outcomes program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, is the principal investigator for the grant. Daniel Ford, M.D., M.P.H., the David M. Levine Professor and vice dean for clinical investigation at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, is a co-principal investigator, as is Harry P. Selker, executive director of the Institute for Clinical Research and Health Policy Studies and dean of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at the Tufts University School of Medicine. Karen Lane, an assistant professor of neurology at Johns Hopkins and a co-investigator, will serve as executive director. Megan Kasimatis Singleton, J.D., M.B.E., assistant dean for human research protection and director of the Office of Human Subjects Research at Johns Hopkins, will coordinate Institutional Review Board activities supported by the grant.
