Annual Site-Based Research Awards

The Site-Based Research (SBR) Awards recognize young investigators and study coordinators who have an aptitude for clinical research and performed well throughout the year.

Our goal is to identify and promote the work of those who are outstanding participants in HF clinical trials. We are particularly interested in recognizing the diverse population of scientists across under-represented minority groups, sex, ethnicity, geographic location, and economic landscapes.

The number of awards is not fixed, and will be determined by the quality of the applicant pool. Eligibility and basic criteria for consideration:  Nominees should have meaningful involvement in a clinical trial listed on Nominees’ range of accomplishments can include meritorious achievement in trial design, execution/enrollment, and/or reporting scientific content in a trial in which they were involved; as well as challenges encountered and steps taken to meet the challenge in a trial.

Metrics to consider include number of subjects enrolled, enrollment of under-represented group/diverse populations, diverse study groups, data quality, retention, and citizenship (helping other sites participate, participating in trial activities, committee participation, patient recognition and education, dissemination of results).

Details about the nomination process will be available soon.
