Transform SC - (Trials and Research Networks For More) South Carolina Pediatrics

Initiatives -
 TRANSFORM SC will connect pediatric investigators experienced in multi-center clinical trials with pediatric providers interested in developing their research knowledge and expertise, in order to establish pediatric clinical trials teams to engage rural and medically underserved populations in state-of-the-art trials and research. The TRANSFORM SC leadership team will provide oversight, mentoring and additional clinical trial support for the developing research teams, through a combination of in person training and a central Virtual Clinical Trials Office utilizing resources available through the South Carolina Translational Research Institute, Health Sciences South Carolina and the SC Telehealth Research and Innovation Program. TRANSFORM SC will integrate with the Data Coordinating and Operations Center to maximize training and research capability at SC sites through learning state-of-the-art techniques in clinical trials for rural and underserved populations across SC.
