Supporting PI/PDs, DAs, CRCs, and other Support Staff

The Center for Clinical Research Advancement (CCRA) comprises the Clinical Trial Office (CTO) and Clinical Research Network (CRN) and promotes initiatives that support the entirety of BMC research and community engagement in pursuit of healthcare advancement for all.

The CTO provides financial support to Principal Investigators/Program Directors (PI/PDs), their Clinical Research Coordinators (CRCs), Department Administrators (DAs), and other support staff, across the life of a clinical trial or other sponsored program or other CR endeavor, such as observational and big data studies involving clinical data.  The CRN engages community groups interested in research, promotes equity and inclusion in research participation, and provides staffing solutions for high-priority, under-resourced studies.  The CRN partners with CRCs and DAs to provide needed extra support.
