The PBRN Shared Resource seeks to catalyze research through the establishment of an easily accessible program for small pilot studies led by practice-based research network (PBRN) members and/or community partners—particularly those focused on clinical translational research in community settings. The goals of the PBRN Shared Resource are to train PBRN clinical and translational researchers, develop bi-directional relationships and enhance knowledge about research through the involvement of community members and clinicians in research endeavors.
