PALISI Platform Trial

Dear Colleagues,

The PALISI Platform trials group is excited to receive your proposal for a potential study to be conducted

within the platform.  We know that the timing has been difficult, so we are extending the deadline one

week from 1/31 to 2/7.

Please know that you/your group will retain ownership and leadership in managing your study using the

platform. The platform will only provide the venue for you to seek and manage your funding in a more

efficient manner; conduct your work collaboratively, productively, and concurrently with other

important PALISI pediatric critical care trials; analyze and publish your data along with support from the

platform statistical team. 

We acknowledge that the concept of a platform trial shifts the paradigm on how to do clinical research that is different from our typical single investigator-initiated initiatives and different from what you may have heard or anticipate. In the spirit of PALISI we hope that this will be a collective (N=X) not an N=1/few. Please reach out for any questions/concerns you may have. 

Please send your outline to Lou Ventura at by February 7, 2024. If that timing doesn’t work for you, please drop us a note with a timeframe that would work.

Our best,

Martha A.Q. Curley (

Roby Khemani (
