As part of our mission we are available to investigators throughout the UT Community and the Texas Medical Center.
The Institute for Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases houses a Think Tank for Clinical Trial Design. This team is made up of experts in trial design and stroke research including: Charles Green, Sean Savitz, MD, Andrew Barreto, MD and other content experts as needed are available to you. This team can help you to identify the appropriate RFPs/RFAs, help to assemble the right mentor team and help with concept synopsis proposals. In order to be access the assistance of the Think Tank, the following conditions must be met:
