How We Support CTR Investigators

Our Community Engagement and Outreach Core team helps investigators and their study teams design projects and research strategies that bring the community voice to the center of their research. The NNE-CTR also has additional Research Navigators who can support investigators in the research process including study design, institutional review board approval, analysis, and more.
