Core Clinical Centers for the Cardiothoracic Surgical Trials Network Program

by:

The National Institutes of Health, more commonly referred to as NIH, is a federal government agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that's generally tasked to support and encourage biomedical and health-related research studies.

The grants and programs of the NIH are all geared towards the attainment of its general agency mission which is to "seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce the burdens of illness and disability."

In keeping with this mission, the National Institutes of Health has partnered with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), and the Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health (ICRH) to establish the Core Clinical Centers for the Cardiothoracic Surgical Trials Network Program.

The primary goal of the Core Clinical Centers for the Cardiothoracic Surgical Trials Network Program is to solicit applications for participation as a Core Clinical Center in a continuation of the Cardiothoracic Surgical Trials Network (CTSN).

In the 2007, the CardioThoracic Surgical Trials Network (CTSN) was launched in an attempt to develop and conduct research studies that are aimed at the evaluation of surgical interventions and related management approaches utilized in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.   (continued...)
