On the first Wednesday of most months, we host an informal gathering known as the CCTS Forum, which offers colleagues an opportunity to learn the latest on a 
variety of clinical and translational science topics. The focus changes each month to help foster creative and unbridled discussion among a wide range of people from across UAB as well as the broader CCTS Partner Network.

The CCTS Forum takes place at the Pittman Center for Advanced Medical Studies (PCAMS), which is situated in the heart of the University of Alabama at Birmingham campus.

The Changing Policy Landscape for Clinical Trials

If you are a member of a research team whose clinical trial is now or hopefully will be funded in whole or in part by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), don’t miss our upcoming CCTS Monthly Forum, when we explore the latest policy requirements to increase the transparency and reproducibility of federally funded human subjects research. /

Our Clinical Research Support Program (CRSP) expert will discuss:

  • NIH’s new Human Subjects and Clinical Trials Information Form (FORM-E), which replaced the old FORM-D for clinical study proposals submitted as of January 25, 2018
  • A new policy announced by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) that requires a data sharing statement for all manuscripts that describe the results of a clinical trial, effective 1 July 2018
  • An ICMJE policy requiring the submission of a data sharing plan at the time a clinical trial is registered as a prerequisite to publishing subsequent findings in any of its journals, effective 1 January 2019 Don’t wait until midnight the day before your grant is due to familiarize yourself with changes that may impact your ability to publish findings and seek NIH funding in the future.
