We would like to congratulate Bernard LeSalle for receiving a subaward from Vanderbilt University Medical Center through the Vanderbilt/Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Network Recruitment Innovation Centers titled Improving Clinical Trial Education, Recruitment, and Enrollment at CTSA Hubs.
Bernard LaSalle, B.S.
The application proposes a set of innovative, integrated solutions to recruitment and enrollment approaches that accommodate real ethical, regulatory, legal, practical, and technical constraints faced by investigators which will be available through the Improving Clinical Trial Education, Recruitment, and Enrollment at CTSA Hubs (I-CERCH) Center.
Underlying these solutions will be a national, shared disease-neutral and informatics supported system that supports enrollment for each trial. I-CERCH will extend and build upon existing ‘precursor’ recruitment and data tools and resources already in use by our team and others, such as ResearchMatch, Record Counter, REDCap, TrialFinder, and Subject Locater to build a sophisticated informatics-based recruitment infrastructure which will be paired with study-specific support provided by recruitment specialists and study-specific recruitment materials.
Benard A. LaSalle, B.S.Bernard (Bernie) A. LaSalle earned his BS in Biology from the University of Utah. He is a clinical instructor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics with a focus on research data management, terminology and data integration. He is also the Operations Director of the Biomedical Research Informatics Service Core, which is part of the Center for Clinical and Translational Science.
