The Division of Clinical Research Management (CRM) provides administrative support for the initiation and conduct of clinical research studies at the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience, particularly regarding regulatory and contractual support to investigators.
Regulatory support ensures the timely and efficient process of obtaining institutional approval for the clinical research studies. Contractual support ensures the implementation of standardized, contractual language and budgetary considerations, which significantly streamline the clinical research agreement review/approval process.
CRM is responsible for the acquisition of new clinical research studies and for maintaining a database of the clinical research programs and study-related performance. Federal and foundation studies can also be managed by CRM.
