Our valued partnerships with researchers in and outside of the Montefiore Einstein system allow for new opportunities to conduct pragmatic clinical trials within routine primary care settings. NYC RING serves as a liaison between investigators and partner sites in a range of diverse urban practice environments – both across the academic health system and within our community-based practices. Here are some of the ways NYC RING can support researchers throughout the life cycle of a study:

    - Methods support and consultation
    - Protocol development
    - IRB and grant writing
    - Clinical setting identification and engagement
    - Implementation of protocols into existing clinic workflows
    - Dissemination and integration of findings in clinical settings
