Research & Operational Tools

A place for CTSA Program members to share relevant and useful guides, manuals, and other tools with the full consortium. This page aims to encourage collaboration and resource-sharing so that hubs across the program don’t need to ‘recreate the wheel’ every time they’re faced with a challenge or question.

These resources may be related to administration, informatics, team science, or communication, among other subject matters. Similar to our Events and News pages, all CLIC website users are invited to submit resources but must be logged into the site to access the submission form. For educational resources, please visit the Education Clearinghouse.
