Pilot Study Evaluation Criteria
The peer review by the Study Review Committee is based on five criteria:
Significance: Does the project address an important issue?
Innovation: Does the project challenge current research or clinical practices?
Approach: Are the methods and strategy appropriate to accomplish project goals?
Feasibility: Is it possible to conduct this study in a timely manner (e.g., 1-1.5 years)?
Overall Impact: Likelihood of project transforming into a larger randomized control trial and making an important contribution to the field
Pilot Study Proposals
Research scientists, clinicians, and other investigators can submit a Pilot Study proposal to the Lyme Clinical Trials Network.
To submit a Pilot Study Proposal:
- Create a user account
- Log in to the secure portion of the Lyme CTN web site
- Create a new application, and complete the online application form
- Submit the final form
Your research concept and design will be reviewed by the CTN Study Review committee. After the review is completed,
each submitter of a proposal will be contacted with an update regarding whether the submitted pilot study concept
has been chosen for further development by the CTN into a possible pilot study.
