Alphabet Soup! NTI, NTRR, CNTR Oh My! - #116
Join us as Pam Bixby, Drs. Don Jenkins, Joseph Dubose and Eileen Bulger explain NTI, NTRR and CNTR – and how these organizations can take your research to the next level!
The National Trauma Institute (NTI) is a nonprofit, national coordinating center for trauma-related research and a strong advocate for an increased federal investment in trauma research. Projects under NTI’s management have engaged more than 70 investigators across the U.S. and drawn nearly $90 million in federal and state funding since its start in 2006. NTI is the organizing force behind the Coalition for National Trauma Research (CNTR), which includes EAST, AAST, ACS-COT and WTA.
Dr. Donald Jenkins is a founding board member of NTI and Principal Investigator on the National Trauma Research Repository (NTRR) project, a comprehensive web platform for sharing research data among trauma investigators. Dr. Joseph Dubose is the Principal Investigator on the Prospective Observational Vascular Injury Trial (PROOVIT), a study managed by NTI. Dr. Eileen Bulger is an NTI and CNTR board member and the Principal Investigator on the National Trauma Research Action Plan (NTRAP) project, managed by CNTR. NTRAP is a large-scale effort to establish a national research agenda that spans the continuum of care. The NTRR launched in 2018 and is now accepting clinical trials data.
