The Children's National Research Institute

Clinical Translational Core

The overall goal of the Clinical Translational Core (CTC) is to efficiently and effectively move basic and applied intellectual and developmental disability research (IDDR) findings into human clinical trials and ultimately clinical practice. The CTC provides assistance and services to IDDRC investigators at each stage of the clinical and translational research. This process is facilitated by a support team and navigators.

The direct functions of the CTC will include:

  • Data mining of large real-world evidence data sources (informatics)
  • Patient recruitment and study performance across multiple venues
  • Consultative support in biostatistics/informatics for planning, designing and analyzing IDDR studies
  • Connection and collaboration with other IDDRC cores for deep phenotyping/genotyping and biobanking
  • Training and dissemination through a web-based investigator toolkit
