NINDS/ORI Grant to Study Errors in Clinical Research

Jeffrey Taekman, MD, along with co-investigators, Melanie Wright, PhD, and Mark Stafford-Smith, MD, received a two-year, $267,415 grant from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and the Office of Research Integrity. These funds will help conduct his research project entitled “Defining the Learning Curve in Research Trials”. The goal of this study is to first define a taxonomy to categorize and quantify clinical research error rates in a reproducible fashion. The taxonomy will then be applied to define baseline error rates and the learning curve in a recently completed NIH funded multi-center clinical trial.
