Recruitment Innovation Center

Hands and WorldWith funding from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) at the National Institutes of Health, Vanderbilt University Medical Center recently established a Recruitment Innovation Center (RIC) to investigate ways to address challenges in recruitment and retention of participants in clinical trials.  The project is led by co-principal investigators Consuelo Wilkins, M.D., MSCI, and Paul Harris, Ph.D., M.S.
