A clinical trial network is a truly collaborative effort. Aside from the physicians and scientists that lead our clinical trials, there are many others that play important roles within JDRF CCTN. In addition to clinical staff, such as our clinical coordinators and nurses that take great care of our clinical trial participants, there is an army working behind the scenes to ensure that our research meets the highest standards and is completed on time, including: statisticians, medical consultants, project managers, finance managers, communications and information technology professionals, fundraising staff, and even a number of engineers. It would be impossible to list everyone, but it doesn't mean their efforts are any less appreciated.
JDRF CCTN Steering Committee
JDRF CCTN is led by a group of leading Canadian clinical researchers from top academic institutions and hospitals who guide JDRF CCTN's research agenda, provide a collaborative platform for clinical trial development, and regularly review JDRF CCTN research progress.
