Map of US showing new CTN nodes - see textMap of CTN nodes, highlighting the new expansion nodes added in 2019.

The Clinical Trials Network (CTN) framework consists of eighteen 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℠:

Appalachian Node

  • PI:  Jane Liebschutz, M.D., Ph.D. (University of Pittsburgh)
  • PI: Judith Feinberg, M.D. (West Virginia University)

Great Lakes Node

  • PI: Niranjan Karnik, M.D., Ph.D. (Rush University)
  • PI: Mark Pollack, Ph.D. (Rush University)

Greater Intermountain Node

  • PI: Adam Joseph Gordon, M.D. (University of Utah)
  • PI: Gerald Cochran, M.S.W., Ph.D. (University of Utah)

Greater Southern California Node

  • PI: Yih-Ing Hser, Ph.D. (University of California at Los Angeles)
  • PI: Larissa Mooney, M.D. (University of California at Los Angeles)

Southwest Node

  • PI: Kimberly Page, Ph.D., M.P.H., M.S. (University of New Mexico)
