Partnership for Access to Clinical Trials (PACT)
NIAID Partnership for Access to Clinical Trials, PACT, is a collaboration in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area that connects health care providers and their patients with researchers at NIAID who are conducting clinical trials at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. The primary goal of the collaboration is to increase access to research by people who may be underrepresented in clinical trials. All services provided by the PACT program to the patients are free of charge.
