  • Research Overview

  • The main goal of the AAST Multi-Institutional Trials Committee (MIT) is to facilitate the design and execution of multi-center projects. In this capacity the AAST-MIT enables researchers to collaborate with other centers. Typically, these collaborations include investigator-initiated projects, often without federal or industrial funding. Institutions rely on their own resources for participation.
