Translational Development or Clinical Services Requests

Request for Services Applications (RSAs) for either translational development or clinical manufacturing will be accepted. Applications for clinical manufacturing or translational development services will undergo a two-part review process. A partial application (Scope) is initially submitted for program scope review, which NHLBI will conduct and either approve or not approve for a Full application submission. Full applications are reviewed in parallel by both NHLBI and an independent scientific review board.

Application Process Overview for Clinical and Translational RSAs


Regulatory Service Requests

Requests for Regulatory Services will be accepted. These regulatory services are provided separately by the PACT Coordinating Center and are considered supplemental to regulatory services provided by the PACT CPF for approved combination RSA. Regulatory services-only requests will only undergo scope review by NHLBI. If approved, the PACT Coordinating Center will contact the applicant to discuss the regulatory services being requested prior to commencing services.

More information on PACT regulatory services provided can be found here: About PACT > PACT Services > PACT supported Regulatory Services.

Application Process Overview for Regulatory-only RSAs

Combination Service Requests

Requests for regulatory services in combination with translational development or clinical manufacturing services requests will also be accepted. For combination RSAs (Clinical/Regulatory OR Translational/Regulatory RSAs), the translational or clinical component of the RSA will undergo the two-part review process described above in parallel with NHLBI's review of the regulatory component of the RSA. Both components of the combination RSA will be reviewed and will be individually approved or not approved.
