NIH StrokeNet Clinical Trials and Biomarker Studies for Stroke Treatment, Recovery, and Prevention Infrastructure Resource Access (X01) -- This opportunity has been expired

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

This FOA encourages requests for access to research resources for multi-site exploratory and confirmatory clinical trials focused on promising interventions, as well as biomarker-or outcome measure validation studies that are immediately preparatory to trials in stroke prevention, treatment, and recovery.  Successful applicants will be given access to the NIH StrokeNet infrastructure.  Following peer review, NINDS will prioritize trials among the highest scoring to be conducted in the NIH StrokeNet infrastructure. The NIH StrokeNet National Coordinating Center (NCC) will work with the successful applicant to implement the proposed study efficiently and the National Data Management Center (NDMC) will provide statistical and data management support.  The NIH StrokeNet Regional Coordinating Centers (RCCs) and their affiliated clinical sites will provide recruitment/retention support as well as on-site implementation of the clinical protocol.

The NIH StrokeNet network will also be uniquely poised to collaborate with other US and international consortia necessary to conduct larger, definitive trials of promising interventions for stroke treatment, prevention, and recovery.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) provides a mechanism for organizations to gain access to the NIH StrokeNet infrastructure resource for the conduct of trials within the scope of the NIH StrokeNet program. Successful applicants are expected to provide all clinical trial costs that are not covered by the infrastructure awards to the NCC, NDMC, and RCCs.   

This FOA provides one of a set of three different means by which teams of investigators can submit trials or studies that are to be conducted within the NIH StrokeNet infrastructure. This FOA uses the X01 mechanism to provide access to the NIH StrokeNet infrastructure resource to both For-profit and Non-profit organizations. Others may wish to consider applying through PAR-17-274 "StrokeNet Research Project - Cooperative Agreement (U01) or PAR-17-275 “StrokeNet Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Cooperative Agreement “.
