Administration and Financial Management Core

The Center for Clinical Research was established to increase clinical and translational research infrastructure, capacity and productivity. A centralized administrative infrastructure is an efficient and responsive means to provide clinical research support, and in turn:

  • Provides shared services that are difficult to establish and maintain by individual investigators

  • Creates a central point of contact for investigators

  • Improves compliance and quality

  • Produces economy of effort

  • Saves overall costs

The central concept of the CCR is to support faculty and their research teams using a flexible offering of services; either by utilizing specific study services or optioning for full-service support.  CCR faculty and staff support clinical investigators with clinical research design and methods, protocol development, grant submission, statistical analysis, data management, financial management and study coordination.
