UCSF Bixby Center joins the Contraceptive Clinical Trials Network

The UCSF Bixby Center has been selected by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) as a member of the Contraceptive Clinical Trials Network (CCTN). In this role, the Center will help the NICHD evaluate new methods of contraception for safety, effectiveness, and acceptability. Center faculty have a long history of conducting contraceptive clinical trials, and look forward to continuing to rigorously evaluate new and improved methods of family planning. The leaders of this initiative are Bixby Center co-Director, Dr. Philip Darney, and the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Women's Health Research Institute Director, Dr. Tina Raine-Bennett.
