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.

Clinical studies can request use of the CDTRP’s 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/year).

CDTRP can provide up to $1,000 per application to support the integration of patient, family, or donor (PFD) partners on your research team. PFD partners are remunerated at a rate of $50/hour and must be a fully integrated team member that would bring their lived experience and expertise to enhance the study. The CDTRP can also provide travel support of up to $1,000 for up to two (2) PFD partners to attend the CDTRP Annual Scientific Meeting, upon request and where applicable (once during the duration of the project). The PFD partner would also be part of our Patient, Family and Donor Partnership Platform and will have access to additional training and educational opportunities.

The CDTRP can connect investigators to the right experts for advice in designing and running clinical trials, including access to biostatisticians, resources to develop contracts, submissions to institutional research ethics boards and Health Canada regulatory approval.

Trainees can also apply for the CDTRP Annual Scientific Meeting Travel Grant, which reimburses up to $1,000 in travel costs.

We can facilitate gathering advisory from experts in Biomarkers, Immune Monitoring and Artificial Intelligence.

The involvement of CDTRP’s Central Management Team throughout the project’s life to offer logistics support, including the organization of teleconferences, webinars, and face-to-face meetings (when possible) and support for national collaboration building. The CDTRP can also help organize small research meetings and support the meeting space and technical support. This support also includes access to our communication platforms for team meetings, including webinars, zoom meetings, and our file-sharing system ($5000 in-kind/year).

We can assist with communication of your project through our monthly Theme calls and Annual Scientific Meeting. We can coordinate the development, translation (French/English), and dissemination of a FAST FACTS document to communicate with and educate both the public and experts in the field on your research topic. Project outputs can be shared via our diverse communication channels, including social media, and educational materials and resources for patients, families and donors can be shared through the CDTRP Patient Portal (approximate $5000 in-kind value).
