NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



Clinical Coordinating Center for the Network of Excellence in Neuroscience Clinical Trials (NEXT - CCC) (U01)

Funding Contact(s): Petra Kaufmann, M.D., M.Sc.
Funding Categories: Clinical Research

Brief Description:

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA), issued by NINDS, is to invite applications to participate as a Clinical Coordinating Center in the Network for Excellence in Neuroscience Clinical Trials. This clinical research network will develop and conduct multiple, scientifically sound, possibly biomarker-informed exploratory clinical trials evaluating the most promising therapies, whether from academic, foundation or industry discoveries. Examples include Phase 2 clinical trials and clinical research studies aimed at validating biomarkers and clinical outcomes in preparation for clinical trials. The network will provide a robust, standardized, and accessible infrastructure to facilitate rapid development and implementation of protocols in neurological disorders affecting adult and/or pediatric populations. While the network will not be specific to one disease, it will have the capacity to coordinate a cadre of specialist investigators to implement studies efficiently in response to disease-specific opportunities. This FOA solicits applications for the Clinical Coordinating Center (CCC). Separate FOAs solicit applications for the Clinical Sites and the Data Coordinating Center (RFA-NS-11-008 and RFA-NS-11-010).
