Contact Evelyn Koestenblatt: [email protected] Pediatric Point Person (PPP) Led by Rick Kaskel, MD, PhD, professor of Pediatrics, the PPP project is an innovative CTSA approach to rapidly implement multi site clinical trials and facilitate effective child health research. Initiated in 2012, each CTSA institution has a designated point person, acting as a navigator, directing trial opportunities to appropriate investigators. At Einstein and Montefiore, the ICTR Office of Clinical Trials and Regulatory Support will assist in implementing trials locally. Several pediatric researchers have shown interest in enrolling patients in approved multi-site clinical trials. The CTSA will market and publicize the PPP program with federal agencies, foundations, CROs, networks, and industry. For more info, call the ICTR at 718430-2500.
