Clinical Research Services
The mission of the CCTR Clinical Research Services Center (CRS) is to augment, cultivate, facilitate, and refine high-quality, subject-oriented clinical research. We partner with the VCU Health System, Office of Sponsored Programs, the IRB and other university and hospital service providers to standardize, streamline and support clinical research efforts.
By tailoring our services to the individual needs of each investigator and team, we provide seamless support from concept to closure. The safety and support of research participants is paramount. We provide clinical research training, expertise and opportunities; enhance administrative, operational and resource efficiencies to support clinical research; and support the discovery of safe, effective and timely treatment options for the communities we serve.
In addition, CRS serves as a coordinating center, fostering collaboration across the enterprise. In this role, the CRS supports communication and harmonization toward improved quality, efficiency, and compliance in clinical and translational science at VCU.
