Map of CTN nodes, highlighting the new expansion nodes added in 2019.

The Clinical Trials Network (CTN) framework consists of sixteen nodes, a Clinical Coordinating Center, and a Data and Statistics Center. This framework links a variety of treatment providers and patient populations throughout the country. This allows the CTN to provide a broad and powerful infrastructure for rapid, multi-site testing of promising science-based therapies and the subsequent delivery of these treatments to patients in a variety of treatment settings.

The CTN recently added five nodes through funding from the NIH HEAL Initiative℠:

  • PI: Jane Liebschutz, M.D., Ph.D. (University of Pittsburgh)
