Network for Emergency Care Clinical Trials: Strategies to Innovate EmeRgENcy Care Clinical Trials Network (SIREN) - Network Clinical Center (Hub) (U24) - RFA-NS-16-016

Program description: The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to invite applications for Clinical Centers (Hubs) in Strategies to Innovate EmeRgENcy Care Clinical Trials Network (SIREN). SIREN will enable conduct of high-quality, multi-site clinical trials to improve the outcomes for patients with neurologic, cardiac, respiratory, and hematologic, and trauma emergency events. SIREN will consist of one Clinical Coordinating Center (CCC), one Data Coordinating Center (DCC) and up to 10 clinical centers (Hubs). A Hub will typically be an academic center or tertiary referral center which will actively enroll patients into every clinical trial performed in SIREN, regardless of disease focus. A Hub will additionally provide scientific leadership and administrative oversight to its multiple satellite sites ("Spokes"). Together the Hub and Spokes will provide access to a large and varying patient population for clinical trials. SIREN will implement a total of at least four large (>1,000 patient) simple, pragmatic clinical trials in the emergency department and pre-hospital settings. The clinical trials will be meritorious, peer–reviewed projects which will be awarded under separate funding announcements. This FOA solicits applications for the SIREN Hubs. Since the Spokes are identified, recruited and overseen by the applicant Hubs, there is no separate FOA for Spokes. Separate FOAs are issued to solicit applications for the Clinical Coordinating Center (RFA-NS-16-014) and Data Coordinating Center (RFA-NS-16-015).
