CPRN Adds Fourteen Charter Member Sites

The Cerebral Palsy Research Network (CPRN) is excited to announce that it is inviting fourteen new sites to join its six founding institutions. CPRN welcomes the sites and think they will be make valuable contributions to the network. The founding sites include the hospital and universities affiliated with our leadership team:

The new sites (Investigators) that are being invited to join our team as charter members include:

These investigators will form the Investigator Committee (IC) for CPRN to not only implement the CPRN registry at their institutions but to plan future studies and quality improvement initiatives. CPRN also welcomes the following investigators to join the IC from the founding institutions:

The CPRN charter members will be the first sites to pilot the CPRN registry and help shape the future research agenda of CPRN. Ten other sites requested membership but could not be accommodated for this initial phase. CPRN plans to embrace an open process for adding future sites for the registry and additional research. Sites interesting in joining CPRN in the future should take advantage of our published meeting minutes and recorded meeting, sample IRB protocols and data collection tools to be ready at our next opportunity to add sites.

Thank you to all of the founding and new site members for your dedication and willingness to collaborate in CP research. The CPRN team is grateful for all of your efforts to make this network a change agent in the field of CP research.
