Monumental clinical trial leverages GHUCCTS Trial Innovation Network

The Memory Improvement through Nicotine Dosing (MIND) study, a clinical trial at the Georgetown University Memory Disorders Program, leveraged the GHUCCTS Trial Innovation Network (TIN) to identify collaborators for the trial through an EHR-based cohort assessment. Investigators also utilized the TIN to conduct community engagement studios that allow for meaningful involvement of diverse groups of stakeholders in the planning and implementation of research.

The MIND study is "the largest and longest of its kind, enrolling up to 300 people in 23 states to see if a nicotine patch, developed to help smokers kick the habit, can also help sharpen memory and attention". NBC4 Washington recently featured the study.

To learn more about how you can leverage the TIN for your multicenter trial or to even become a site investigator on a trial utilizing the TIN, please visit our GHUCCTS TIN page.

As part of NIH’s multi-faceted response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have launched an unprecedented four-pronged initiative, entitled Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics, or RADx, to catalyze the scientific community to improve testing technologies, capacity, and accessibility for the country. As one of the four RADx components, RADx-Underserved Populations (RADx-UP) will establish a network of community-engaged projects to improve access to and acceptance of testing in underserved and vulnerable populations. The overarching goal of this $500M effort is to understand factors that have led to disproportionate burden of the pandemic on these populations, so that interventions can be implemented to decrease the disparities.
