ClinicalTrials.gov is the world’s largest repository of clinical trial information. The site allows the public to easily find and learn about the myriad of research studies in human participants. Users can determine which studies are recruiting, when they will be completed, and can even find trial results. But what should researchers and recipients be aware of regarding this system as it relates to reporting NIH grant-funded trials? Join us for this episode of the NIH All About Grants podcast to hear from Dr. Anna Fine, the Acting Director of ClinicalTrials.gov. She will discuss the site’s purpose, some requirements for recipients (more on the reporting policy in a follow-up podcast), types of information to be submitted, the process for submitting information, relevant resources, and more.
“..Insuring transparency and accountability is really about good stewardship of NIH funds and it’s a shared commitment between NIH and investigators. We are your partner in achieving these important goals.” – Dr. Anna Fine
