The Connector program links and supports clinical investigators across all of Harvard University’s schools and affiliated hospitals to promote the formation of clinical and translational research teams and facilitate high-quality research. We provide consultation and support from conception and planning, through Institutional Review Board (IRB) review, to recruitment, data acquisition and analysis, and dissemination of results. Connector is particularly dedicated to growing and enabling the next generation of clinical and translational (C/T) researchers through targeted support and mentorship of junior faculty, fellows, allied health professionals, and medical and graduate students.

The Harvard Catalyst Network program links clinical investigators at Harvard with the NCATs Trial Innovation Network (TIN), which serves as a conduit for conducting multisite studies. The Network program will help investigators develop a high-quality, multicenter study and assist in the proposal process to the TIN as well as provide Harvard investigators with an opportunity to become site investigators for an external study seeking Harvard collaborators.
