To the Editor: We welcome Dr Nathan's call,1 on behalf of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director's Panel on Clinical Research, for a "collaborative effort" to cultivate and advance our nation's system of clinical research, which some believe to be in "crisis."2,3 Indeed, our organizations, with the support of some of the major health-related foundations, have embarked on precisely that process responding to "A Call for Action" issued in THE JOURNAL by Thompson and Moskowitz.4
