Center for Clinical Research
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. This centralized infrastructure:
- 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.
In addition The Center for Clinical Research enhances our Institution's ability to conduct high quality clinical research studies. Such studies often provide our patients with alternative treatment options for a variety of debilitating conditions that are not widely available. Our active participation in the research process helps us contribute to the development of more effective treatments and ensure the medical community continues to search for the best treatment options available for our patients.
