Any U.S. center that is not a Core Center may participate as an Affiliate Center. Affiliate Centers must apply to participate in each study via an application form. Please note that a center, that has not enrolled patients on a BMT CTN trial within the past three years, will be required to submit additional information. Affiliate Centers are required to execute a master agreement with the BMT CTN; each study requires a separate rider to this agreement.
Affiliate Centers may also qualify to appoint a voting member to the Steering Committee membership for a 2-year term by enrolling at least 12 patients in at least 2 BMT CTN studies during a 12-month period. A yearly review of Affiliate Center participation (review period July 1 – June 30) determines which Affiliate Centers qualify for the 2-year Steering Committee membership. Membership includes voting privileges and travel reimbursement for in-person meetings. The term is renewable if an Affiliate Center maintains the minimum accrual requirements. Additional information may be found on the BMT CTN Administrative MOP page.
