Please read the Corrona Research Foundation (CRF) Publications, Presentations and Ancillary Study Proposals Guidelines before completing this proposal.
A First Step to submitting a proposal is a brief, 2 paragraph, submission that describes the hypothesis, proposal and key data elements needed. The CRF will then check with Corrona, LLC to determine if there is any overlap or conflict with their current or planned activities and priorities. If there are no conflicts, then the submitter will be notified of an approval for a Full Submission to be considered and numerically rated by the Clinical Investigators Committee (see below description).
1. Brief two paragraph submission to the BOD which will then determine both the
feasibility of the project for the use of Corrona data, and if there is any overlap
with LLC priorities that would DQ the effort.
2. If no issues are identified in 1, then approval is given for submission to the
Clinical Investigators Committee to include 2 pages; below and next slide:
Definition(s) of hypotheses and research theme(s) along with data
elements required to address the research topic. Abstracts and
manuscript development should include targeted meetings and journals.
Description of skeletal Table and Figure elements to be produced by the

approve this “proposal” step.)
