Support Services

Clinical Research Support Services (CRSS) is staffed by qualified, experienced, and certified clinical research coordinators who are well versed in the application of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) to their day to day activities.  These multi-disciplinary, registered nurse and non-nurse coordinators, known collectively as the Study Coordinator Float Pool, provide both on and off-site services to investigators.  Through their unique outreach model, they are able to offer study coordination at multiple sites for multiple investigators simultaneously.  While they are able to provide complete study coordination to an investigator, they can also be called upon to provide any one of a range of services including: 

  • Patient Recruitment
  • Patient Consenting
  • IRB Preparation/Submission
  • Data Management
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Blinded follow-up assessment
  • Study start-up


Investigators working with the Study Coordinator Float Pool are also provided with access to the services of the Director of CRSS.  Having a close working relationship with the Department of Financial Services, the Office of Research Compliance, and the Office of Grants and Contracts, the manager is able to work with investigators on:

  • Study Feasibility Assessment
  • Logistical Consideration and Planning
  • Budget Development and Negotiation
  • Financial Tracking
