This RFA invites applications for planning grants submitted by self-assembled groups of institutions to conceptualize and design Regional Translational Research Centers (RTRCs) to foster more efficient and robust translational research. Once operational, RTRCs will provide a broad menu of clinical research expertise, services, and core technologies to multiple institutions within a region. The goal: to enhance the bi-directionalbench to bedside and bedside to benchcommunication that characterizes translational research. Planning grants to organize the content, administration, and governance of three center models may be submitted: (1) a regional center (RTRC) to provide clinical research services that may include data/statistical/bioinformatics support, assistance with regulatory issues and communication with IRBs, recruitment cores, pilot project support, and specialized staff as appropriate ; (2) a core technology center (C-RTRC) to offer only core!
technologies on a regional or national scale to aid the study of disease pathogenesis or early-phase clinical interventional studies; and (3) an expanded center (E-RTRC), a hybrid of the first two models, to provide regional clinical research services plus core technologies on a regional or national scale. Future RFAs will request applications for the actual RTRCs.
