Accrual to Clinical Trials (ACT)

This service is provided by the Biomedical Informatics Resource and the Trial Innovation Network Hub Liaison Team.


The Accrual to Clinical Trials (ACT) Network is a real-time platform allowing researchers to explore and validate feasibility for clinical studies across the NCATS Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) consortium, from their desktops. ACT helps researchers plan and complete clinical studies, and is IRB-approved. To access the ACT platform, researchers at Columbia University must contact our Clinical Data Navigator. 

ACT was developed collaboratively by members of NCATS’ Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) consortium, with funding from the NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences.


This service is available to all researchers and clinical trialists at Columbia University.
