Updates from CLIC
CLIC has launched a new Resource Center so that CTSA Program members can easily share relevant and useful guides, manuals and other tools with the full consortium. This page aims to encourage collaboration and resource-sharing so that hubs across the program don’t need to ‘recreate the wheel’ every time they’re faced with a challenge or question.
