A key early success of C-SPIN has been the rapid integration of members from different groups within the multidisciplinary research network.
The Network has attracted highly experienced members from a wide-range of scientific backgrounds (cardiologists, neurologists, cardiac surgeons, emergency room physicians, family practitioners, pharmacists, statisticians, methodologists, knowledge translation (KT) experts and population scientists) representing institutions known internationally from across Canada.
C-SPIN’s National Coordinating Office is located at the Population Health Research Institute (PHRI), a joint institute of Hamilton Health Sciences and McMaster University. PHRI is home to more than 250 researchers, physicians, scientists, epidemiologists, biostatisticians, rehabilitation experts, nutrition scientists, research coordinators, allied health professionals, and quality assurance personnel, as well as research and administrative support personnel. PHRI is one of Canada’s premier research institutes, world-renown for its global networks and large international clinical trials.
