The NINDS Clinical Trials Methodology Course (CTMC) is an intensive, engaging program designed to help junior investigators develop scientifically rigorous, yet practical clinical trial protocols, and to focus on early consideration of funding mechanisms as a key trial planning activity.



The CTMC is organized by the University of Michigan, in collaboration with the University of Iowa and UCLA. The course consists of distance and on-site learning opportunities. The CTMC 2016 began with a series of open-access webinars in early Spring 2016. An in-person residential phase will be held August 7 - 11, 2016 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The CTMC will provide funding for travel and lodging to successful applicants. Additional remote course activities will occur in Fall 2016.
