NeuroDevNet

Description:, Purpose:, NeuroDevNet, a Canadian Network of Centres of Excellence (NCE), is dedicated to helping children overcome neurodevelopmental disorders. Network investigators seek to understand the causes of neurological deficits, and to transfer this knowledge to health care professionals, policy makers, and communities of interest. NeuroDevNet works with its partners in academia, the community, not-for-profit sector, industry, and government, and across traditional disciplinary boundaries and sectors, to ensure generated knowledge is translated into tangible diagnostic, preventative, therapeutic, social, economic, and health benefits for all., NeuroDevNet supports transformative research, provides training to build a new generation of Canadian researchers, strengthens communities with the right tools and information, and translates research findings into early diagnostic, preventative, and therapeutic strategies for children with neurological disorders to live healthier lives. Currently, the network's research focuses on autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder.

NeuroNext Network

Description:, Purpose:, Background, While effective treatments have been developed for some neurological disorders, there is room for improvement in existing treatments and a desperate need for treatments for diseases where none exist. Because of the extraordinary progress in basic neuroscience, we expect that the next decade will transform the opportunity to develop and test new therapies. Scientists are unraveling molecular, cellular and circuit functions of the nervous system and are identifying genes and pathways that cause disease. Imaging techniques allow scientists and physicians to examine the living human brain in exquisite detail. These new insights will fuel the development of new treatments that will need to be tested in patients., Clinical trials are an essential step in determining if and how new drugs, biologics or devices might benefit patients. Having an effective and efficient system for conducting clinical trials is critical to realizing the promise of basic and translational neuroscience. Our experience and the experience of others indicate that the time and cost of clinical trials decrease when trial networks are used., Introducing NeuroNEXT –A clinical research network designed to accelerate therapy development, To address the opportunities and need for testing new therapies, NINDS has established the Network for Excellence in Neuroscience Clinical Trials, or NeuroNEXT. The network was created with three main goals in mind. First, we want to support scientifically valid, biomarker-informed Phase 2 (exploratory) clinical trials so that we can efficiently test new treatments before embarking on large and costly Phase 3 (efficacy) trials. Second, we want to expand our ability to test the most promising new therapies, whether from academic or industry investigators. Third, as trial opportunities arise for a wide range of disorders affecting both children and adults, we want to provide the infrastructure for and expertise of a cadre of disease-specific investigators., Members:, Through NeuroNEXT, the NINDS is supporting 25 clinical sites across the United States, together with two other components: a clinical coordinating center to provide cost-effective management in operating multiple trials, and a data coordinating center that will provide state-of-the-art efficient statistical designs and take advantage of the economy of scales in data management and quality control, as well as set the stage for the sharing and mining of the valuable clinical datasets generated from the many research projects funded by the NINDS. One particularly innovative aspect of NeuroNEXT is the use of a common IRB that should significantly decrease the time between trial design and initiation while ensuring patient safety., NeuroNEXT will provide a robust, standardized, and accessible infrastructure to facilitate rapid development and implementation of protocols in neurological disorders affecting adult and/or pediatric populations. The network includes multiple Clinical Sites, one Clinical Coordinating Center (CCC) and one Data Coordinating Center (DCC), Clinical Coordinating Center, Massachusetts General Hospital Announces Neurological Clinical Research Institute November, 2012 Boston, MA—The Department of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital is pleased to announce that the Neurology Clinical Trials Unit has changed its name to the Neurological Clinical Research Institute (NCRI). This name change reflects the organization’s development as a recognized global leader in neurological clinical research, and its evolving scope and new strategic goals. Founded by Drs. Merit Cudkowicz and Steven Greenberg in 1994, the NCRI has expertise in therapy development and an extensive history in leading clinical research to find new treatments for neurological diseases. The continued success of the NCRI and the Mass General Neurology Department relies on a deep commitment to collaboration and cross-departmental, cross-institutional, industry, and government agency partnerships. By fostering and empowering these scientific collaborations, the NCRI’s mission is to accelerate translational research in neurological disorders through initiating and testing novel therapies by custom-designing research protocols, by bringing efficacy strategies and infrastructure to clinical research, and implementing observational and interventional trials. “These are exciting times for the field of neurology,” says Dr. Cudkowicz, Mass General’s chief of neurology and NCRI co-founder. “The neurosciences are on the brink of tremendous breakthroughs and unprecedented opportunities in understanding and treating neurological disorders. We are so close to developing treatments for hundreds of diseases. We’re finding new ways to deliver therapies and change clinical practice.” The NCRI will continue to serve as the Coordinating Center for the NEALS Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) consortium (www.alsconsortium.org), which translates scientific advances into clinical research and new treatments for ALS and other rare motor neuron diseases. NEALS is an international nonprofit research consortium that brings together more than 500 scientists, clinicians and nurses at more than 100 trial sites in North America, Ireland and Israel. NEALS is committed to the cooperative implementation, timely completion, analysis and reporting of clinical trials and research studies aimed at improving patient care and understanding of the disease process. The NCRI also acts as the Clinical Coordinating Center for the Network for Excellence in Neuroscience Clinical Trials (NeuroNEXT, www.neuronext.org). NeuroNEXT is an innovative National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke's (NINDS)-supported phase II clinical trials network, providing efficient, standardized, and accessible infrastructure to facilitate rapid development and implementation of protocols in neurological diseases affecting adult and/or pediatric populations through partnerships with academia, private foundations and industry.
