Information for Sponsors

The goal of the Dermatology Clinical Research Program is to provide outstanding service to our sponsors, and outstanding dermatologic care to our patients and study participants, while using the latest technology available.  The Dermatology Clinical Research Program operates with a team for each study consisting of a Principal Investigator, one or more Sub-Investigators, two clinical research coordinators, a clinical trials administrative specialist, and a data entry specialist.

The UC Health Dermatology Clinical Research Program has fully equipped examination rooms, with locked cabinets and a locked freezer for investigational product. There are also locked cabinets for source documents and other confidential material. State of the art equipment is monitored (with results logged) on a regular basis per regulations. There is a large private office available for study monitor use, as well as a Dermatology Library for group meetings.
