Neurological Emergencies Treatment Trials (NETT)

The Neurological Emergencies Treatment Trials (NETT) is an interdisciplinary research network dedicated to reducing the burden of acute injuries and illnesses affecting the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system.


The Neurological Emergencies Treatment Trials (NETT) Network is an NIH created network dedicated toward emergency issues. The NETT is made up of 17 "Hub" institutions nationwide, each having at least three "Spoke" hospitals. The NETT Network is interdisciplinary, including, but not limited to, emergency physicians, neurologists, and neurosurgeons. The NETT is unique from other clinical trials in that it is long-term, not ending when one study is complete, but moving on to the next and having several studies running at a time. This nationwide network will be able to enroll enough patients to do statistically significant studies much more efficiently and quickly.

OHSU is currently serving as a primary hub site for NETT. As a hub site, OHSU coordinates local sites, and participates in research projects that are being performed at multiple sites around the United States. These trials study many different kinds of neurologic issues, such as traumatic brain injury, stroke, or seizure.

Dr. Craig Warden, of the Department of Emergency Medicine, is the Principle Investigator of the OHSU hub network. Jennifer Cook is the hub project manager.
