Organizational Overview

The Transfusion Medicine Hemostasis Clinical Trial Network is funded through the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The Data Coordinating Center (DCC) plays a key role in developing and facilitating study protocols and is responsible for statistical planning and accumulation of quality data from participating clinical centers. The DCC for the TMH CTN is New England Research Institutes, Inc.,

There are 17 Core Clinical Centers (some of which are consortia of two or more centers) with cooperative agreements from the NHLBI to participate in the CTN. Additional non-Core Centers may also participate in CTN trials through subcontracts with the DCC.
