Clinical Research Services
The Center for Clinical and Translational Research at Virginia Commonwealth University established the Clinical Research Services.
Our mission is to augment, cultivate, facilitate and refine high-quality, subject-oriented clinical research. Our primary customers include investigators, research and administrative staff and funding organizations. We also 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.
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.
While our mission is to provide mechanisms for quality clinical research, the overarching goal is to improve the overall health and wellness of our community.
