Study Design and Coordination

Study Design

Due to our academic status and the prominence of our faculty, we have excellent working relationships with the FDA and NIH, which can facilitate creation and approval of study protocols.

Clinical Site Selection and Management

To meet the needs of our studies, the Coordinating Center has associations with a large number of clinical sites, both nationally and internationally, that have a history of successful recruitment and protocol compliance.

Study Coordination and Implementation

Each study is managed by a project director who has responsibility for being the liaison to government agencies, clinical sites, and vendors, as well as overseeing the study schedule and budget. Our project directors collectively have over 40 years of study management experience.
