The NNE-CTR supports our members via a series of cores. These cores are here to help you from the initial spark of an idea through to the publication of your results.


Resource Cores

Our Administrative Core serves as the heart of the NNE-CTR, providing the leadership and resources to support regionally relevant research. Have a question? Start here.

Once you have formed your hypothesis and have an idea for what your project looks like, our Pilot Projects Program is your next stop. This core provides financial support for research and/or community projects, and it is where you'll find examples of the work we've supported in the past. 

The Biostatistics, Epidemiology, & Research Design Core provides expert guidance across the research process, from study design to analysis and reporting.

Our Community Engagement & Outreach Core facilitates community-engaged research by connecting researchers and communities.

The Professional Development Core provides mentorship and professional development training for NNE-CTR clinical and translational investigators and clinicians at any stage in their careers.

The Translational Research Technologies Core furnishes all NNE-CTR members with access to state-of-the-art research technologies.

Finally, our Tracking & Evaluation Core collects network-wide data on program activities, outcomes, and diversity to inform Administrative Core decision making.
