This chapter focuses on coordinating centers because of their key role in multicenter trials. The coordinating center, or data coordinating center when there are separate coordinating centers for data collection and treatment, will be among the first to be funded and the last to cease operations when the trial is completed. In fact, the coordinating center may operate after the trial is terminated if post-trial follow-up is required.
