Training Grant : Clinical Trials Training Platforms

Funding Information

Through this funding opportunity, support will be provided to develop the highly qualified personnel needed in each step of the clinical trials pipeline. Within the Clinical Trials Training Platforms (CTTP), a diverse cadre of trainees, researchers, healthcare professionals and clinical research professionals will learn from experienced mentors how to direct the conception, design and implementation of high-quality clinical trials and how to communicate the research results for knowledge mobilization.

The CTTP will be required to implement recruitment, training, and mentoring strategies to attract high-caliber trainees, researchers, healthcare professionals and clinical research professionals, while applying best practices for equity, diversity, and inclusion, and Indigenous rights. In addition to supporting the development of technical skills to support excellence in clinical trials, the CTTP will integrate additional training to advance rigorous and responsible research. 

These training platforms must demonstrate a value-add and are expected to provide training and mentoring opportunities that demonstrate functions that go above and beyond standard research training programs that already exist. 

The successful CTTP are required to participate in the Pan-Canadian Clinical Trials Consortium once it is established.
