Have you heard?

The IDeA State Consortium for Clinical Research Resource Center (ISCORE-RC) is now enrolling! ISCORE-RC offers a comprehensive training program for clinical research coordinators and a dedicated clinical service core designed to enhance capacity for increased clinical study opportunities. 

Made possible by funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), this innovative resource center facilitated by WVCTSI is revolutionizing access to clinical research opportunities for underserved populations in Institutional Development Award (IDeA) states, that traditionally have relatively low rates of NIH funding and limited numbers of NIH funded clinical trials.
