The NINDS Clinical Trials Methodology Course (CTMC)
The NINDS Clinical Trials Methodology Course (CTMC) [NIH Project Number: R25NS088248] is an intensive, engaging program designed to help junior investigators develop scientifically rigorous, yet practical clinical trial protocols, and to focus on early consideration of funding mechanisms as a key trial planning activity.
COURSE INFORMATION: The CTMC is organized by the University of Michigan, in collaboration with the University of Iowa and UCLA. The course consists of distance and on-site learning opportunities. The CTMC 2017 will begin with a series of open-access webinars in early Spring 2017. An in-person residential phase will be held August 7 - 11, 2017 in Iowa City, IA. The CTMC will provide funding for travel and lodging to successful applicants. Additional remote course activities will occur in Fall 2017.
The application deadline is February 28, 2017 at midnight Pacific Time. Notification of application opening and deadline will be provided through announcements from AAN.
Anyone who is interested to learn about Bioinformatics basics. Please note that this is an introductory course and no prior knowledge of programming or computer science is required.

This event is sponsored by: CENTRIC (Center for Patient, Family, and Community Engagement in Chronic Care Management), The Great Plains IDeA-CTR and the College Of Public Health.
One of the roles of the Community Advisory Board and the Community Engagement core is to help researchers prioritize research questions and plan for the movement of research into practice. Within the walls of academia and the pages of journal articles the movement of research into practice is defined as an important step on the levels of translational research.
What is T3/T4 Research?
Translational research starts from pre-clinical or human studies that test potential treatment or prevention strategies and includes testing those strategies in clinical settings under ideal conditions, then testing those strategies in typical clinics or community organizations, and finally making policy, system, and environmental changes to support those strategies benefiting whole populations of people.
Research in the areas of pre-clinical and clinical translation, known as T1 and T2, is pretty well developed and defined, though there is still a lot of discussion about where basic science ends and translational science begins. At the other end of the spectrum, testing new treatments and preventive medicine approaches in typical clinics and communities as well as moving science into policy, system, and environmental changes—known as T3 and T4 research—is less well defined and funded. It is arguably also the type of research that communities and community advisory boards can have the greatest impact.
On August 14th and 15th, the Great Plains IDeA Clinical and Translational Research Network will host a workshop to help scientists develop and refine ideas for grant proposals that focus on T3 and T4 dissemination and implementation research. We have a keynote by Dr. Russ Glasgow, an international expert in implementation science and several local speakers with expertise and experience getting funding for this type of research. T3 and T4 research projects are intended to move science forward while also having a community impact, so if this is the type of applied work you would like to do or your community would like to engage in, come and join in for our workshop.

Dissemination and Implementation Science
Implementation science is the study of methods that influence the integration of evidence-based interventions into practice settings. Dissemination is the process of spreading knowledge and information to these settings. Key points and the importance of D&I science can be found here
T3: Translation to practice
- Phase 3b and Phase 4 drug trials
- Dissemination & implementation research
- Pragmatic trials
- Comparative effectiveness research
- Community Participatory Based Research
- Demonstration projects
- Quality improvement
- Meta-analyses and systematic reviews
- ‘Scale Up’ and ‘Diffusion’ research
- Systems research, e.g., social network analysis
- Policy analysis, ‘natural experiments’
- Epidemiology and outcomes research studies
- Performance management measurement
- Cost effectiveness
