Trial Innovation Network (TIN)


Trial Innovation Network

A collaborative national network for multi-site clinical trials that focuses on operational innovation, excellence, and collaboration.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) launched the Trial Innovation Network (TIN) in 2017 to help researchers carry out multicenter clinical trials better, faster and more cost-efficiently, and to create a national laboratory to study, understand and innovate the process of conducting clinical trials. 

The Trial Innovation Network aims to develop, demonstrate effectiveness of, and disseminate scientific and operational innovations that dramatically increase the effectiveness of clinical studies. It features a single IRB system, master contracting agreements, quality by design approaches, and focuses on evidence-based strategies for recruitment and patient engagement.

Researchers who are interested in bringing new interventions to patients and communities more effectively and efficiently should be interested in the collaborations and opportunities TIN provides.
