Clinical Research Management Unit

The Office of Clinical Trials (OCT) assigns clinical/therapeutic groups to a dedicated Clinical Research Support Specialist (CRSS) and Clinical Research Operations Specialists (CROS) to ensure projects are reviewed, processed and coordinated through their life-cycle in a timely manner, based on institutional policies and procedures. Through a dedicated Post Award Team, we manage all study financial activities for industry funded trials.

Clinical Research Support Specialist (CRSS)

Responsible for:

  • Submission pre-review
  • Modification processing
  • Serving as primary contact for research teams related to department assignment
  • Oversight and guidance for the submission of required study related documents

Please send all initial project-specific questions and communications first to any CRSS’. The CRSS’ will guide you on the required steps for submitting a study and direct you to the manager assigned to support your department.
