ClinicalTrials.gov is a registry and results database of publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants conducted around the world.
Clinical trials and subsequent study results are required by public law to be registered. Failure to comply with this law can result in financial penalties and the inability to publish study findings in major scientific journals.
The Vanderbilt Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (VICTR) serves as the Institutional Protocol Registration System (PRS) administrator. For more information about this requirement and assistance with registering a study and submitting results, go to StarBRITE and click on “Planning & Implementation” then “ClinicalTrials.gov.” You may also call the Research Support Services hotline at 322-7343.
