Programs such as the National Institutes of Health's CTSA initiative and its recent Grand Opportunities (GO) funding opportunity have spurred substantial growth in multicenter research, she explained. "This means today's researchers are challenged to quickly surmount the logistical and operational barriers to project development. We built the ResearchToolkit.org site to help them."

The website was developed as part of a project known as PRIMER, or Partnership-driven Resources to IMprove and Enhance Research. PRIMER was awarded to the Institute for Translational Health Sciences (ITHS) at the University of Washington by the NCRR. The study team included researchers from Group Health Research Institute and the University of Washington (both in Seattle, WA), Duke University (Durham, NC), and Wayne State University (Detroit, MI). "The partnership among our teams ultimately helped strengthen the final product," according to collaborating investigator Anne Victoria Neale, PhD, MPH, a professor at Wayne State.

"Working with multiple sites on budgeting, developing the science, initiating the research study, and writing manuscripts can be especially challenging" noted Rowena Dolor, MD, MHS, co-investigator and primary care research network director from Duke University Medical Center. The "toolkit" on the website spans the entire lifecycle of a research project, allowing visitors to find to everything from a link to regulatory training,
