Do you have a single center study that just didn’t produce enough enrollment to achieve your research goals?  Do you have a great research idea (retrospective or prospective), but just don’t believe you can get it off the ground without multicenter collaboration?  How about achieving your goals more effectively through collaboration with other EAST members in a multicenter project?

The Multicenter Trials Committee within the EAST Research Division is seeking high quality multicenter trial ideas to enter into the 2020 EAST MCTs cohort.  

If you have an idea for a multicenter trial that you would want EAST to sponsor, submit your study documents by August 30, 2019 using the form below.  All proposals will be reviewed by the EAST Multicenter Trials Committee.  Inputs of the Committee will be conferred confidentially to the primary investigator.  Selected proposals will be listed for recruitment on the EAST Multicenter Study Website.    

*Please note, if you are not a current EAST member and are looking to submit a proposal, a Sponsor that is an active EAST member does need to be identified.  If you need assistance in finding a Sponsor please contact Rachel Dixon at rdixon@east.org.
