The Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications from qualified institutions willing to participate with NHLBI in the Cardiothoracic Surgical Trials Network (CTSN) as Linked Clinical Research Centers (LCRCs). The LCRCs will: (1) conduct collaborative randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and studies that evaluate cross specialty team-based care, interventions and novel therapies in the context of cardiac surgery but with broader relevance to cardiology and neurology; (2) utilize these findings to improve patient outcomes, and influence clinical practice, with benefits that are translatable to the general population; (3) conduct implementation research alongside RCTs to understand the best strategies for optimal uptake and sustainability and to bolster translation in areas of high disease burden; and (4) foster the next generation of clinical and implementation researchers.
