The Health Science and Human Services (HS2) Division seeks a ClinicalTrials.gov Results Analyst to support our National Institutes of Health/National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM) client. The National Institutes of Health, a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the primary Federal agency for conducting and supporting medical research (http://www.nih.gov/). The NLM collects, organizes, and makes available biomedical science information to scientists, health professionals, and the public (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/).
ClinicalTrials.gov is a registry and results database of publicly and privately supported clinical research conducted in the United States and around the world. Both registration and results submission are accomplished through the Web-based Protocol Registration and Results System (PRS).
