Trial Innovation Network


The Trial Innovation Network (TIN) is a collaborative initiative within the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program composed of three organizational partners: the 60+ CTSA program hubs (including Cincinnati), the Trial Innovation Centers (TICS, led by three hubs), and the Recruitment Innovation Center (RIC).

The mission of the Network is to innovatively address critical roadblocks in publically funded multi-site (3+ sites) clinical trials by leveraging the expertise and resources of the CTSA program to accelerate the translation of novel interventions into life-saving therapies. A sampling of the services provided by the Network include:

  • Single IRB System

  • Master Contracting Agreements

  • Evidence-based Recruitment Strategies

  • Protocol Development

  • Project Management

  • Data Management

  • Regulatory Support

  • Budget Planning

  • Statistical Support

  • CTSA Site Identification

  • EHR Based Cohort Selection Across 60 CTSA Sites


Locally, a Hub Liaison team led by Jeffrey Strawn, MD guides investigators through the online TIN application process. For more information, email Dr. Strawn or visit Please click here to view a TIN informational guide for investigators.
