- The funding opportunity announcement (FOAs) will specify whether clinical trials are required, optional, or not allowed.
- NIH has revised their proposal form to consolidate and streamline human subjects information. Investigators must use the new Form E.
- Multi-site studies must use a single IRB.
Come to the Research Expo and find out how the Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research can help you! The sessions are divided into two tracks that will run concurrently. The Wright Center’s Lydia Klinger and Tim Aro will be presenting the following sessions that day. Come and check it out!
Session Title: First Look: Wright Center Clinical Research Coordinator Education & Training Program
Presenters: Meghan Wright – IRB Training & Education Manager; Lydia Klinger –Director of Business Operations, Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research
“I’m excited the Wright Center is taking such a central role in establishing programs that will promote the role of clinical research coordinators, both by providing them with standardized and robust training opportunities, and by being an advocate for their professional development and recognition.”
Session Description: While clinical research coordinators at VCU share many of the same responsibilities, training and education has historically varied from department to department. This session offers you a first look at the Wright Center’s CRC Education & Training Program, a collaborative initiative designed to provide a comprehensive, standardized approach to support quality clinical research at VCU. With robust resources, multiple training mechanisms, and tools to support clinical research coordinators and their supervisors, this program is designed to meet everyone’s needs. Come get a sneak peek at what the CRC Taskforce has up its sleeve for 2018!
Session Title: Informatics Tools and Services Supporting the Clinical Research Life Cycle
Presenters: Tim Aro, Manager – Clinical Research Informatics; Bobby Moulden, Manager – OnCore Clinical Trial Management
“Our goal is to provide the tools and services to allow investigators to focus on the science. Let the Wright Center help you with the technical aspects so scientists can focus on their research and bring new treatments to patients.”
Session Description: The Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research will present a variety of informatics tools and services and describe how they can help support the clinical research life cycle. This pragmatic presentation will discuss technologies that can be leveraged during various phases of the clinical trial life cycle. Find out how informatics resources can help with study design/feasibility, multi-site collaborations, work flows, recruitment and trial management, electronic data capture solutions, and more.
