Support from the CDTRP
The CDTRP can provide up to $10,000 as a cash contribution to help cover the cost of an economic, legal, ethics, or social analysis to accompany your main study. This analysis is intended to enhance the scope of your primary study and provide further understanding on the social and economic impact of the research. This funding can be used to support your existing collaborations, or we can help you identify potential collaborators to work with you. The CDTRP will provide this $10K directly to your collaborator to complete this analysis
CDTRP supported clinical studies can request use of the independent Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) to help monitor progress and adverse events and provide arms length advice on patient safety and trial accrual. The CDTRP can provide access to the DSMB as an in-kind resource to your study ($2000 value).
CDTRP can provide up to $500 per application to support the integration of a patient/family partner on your research team (10 hours, $50/hr). This patient/family partner would be a fully integrated team member that would bring their lived experience and patient expertise to enhance the study. The CDTRP can also provide full travel support for the partner to attend the CDTRP Annual Meeting (avg $1000). The patient/family partner would also be part of our Patient, Family, Donor Researcher-Partnership Platform and have access to training and mentorship.
Any CDTRP trainees identified in your application must apply to and fully participate in the CDTRP Academic Training Program, which provides your trainees with access to our national curriculum, training webinars, structured mentorship program, and up to $1000 each to reimburse travel to the CDTRP Annual Meeting.
We can facilitate gathering advisory from experts in AI and Immune Monitoring, and access to the CDTRP National Specimen Inventory (NanSI) team, an online directory of biomarker experts across Canada to increase the use of biomarkers in different disease settings, provide translational applications and generate data to inform larger grant applications.
You can include the support and resources from any of our central staff to support your CDTRP study and can include a portion of our time as an in-kind resource. You can also request access to the CDTRP teleconference and webinar systems on Zoom, space on our website to promote your study and share information, access to our CDTRP Dropbox, and central communication to all members of the network (in-kind resources).
The CDTRP can offer to help organize small research meetings as part of the CDTRP Annual Meeting and can help cover the cost of the meeting space and the AV (in kind). We can also help promote the results of your study through our monthly Theme calls, on Sosido, on our website and social media platforms, and at our annual meeting (in-kind resources).
The CDTRP can work with you to include the production of FAST FACTS as a research output for your study. As an in-kind resource, the CDTRP can assemble a collaborative team, create the production design, translate into French or English, and promote to our community.
