The CTO – Clinical Trials Office – is a service of the UCH CTRC (of the CCTSI) which provides clinical research services to pharmaceutical industry-initiated protocols. Are you a researcher who serves as the Principal Investigator for pharmaceutical or biotech company studies? The UCH CTRC/CTO can provide assistance with protocol submission, research nursing, specimen processing, nutrition services, research facilities, and others. We understand the needs of industry-funded research and the value of reducing the time to start enrollment of study subjects, so we are proud to be a WIRB Fast-Track site. As a WIRB Fast-Track site we have condensed the CTO, UCH HRRC and WIRB approval timeline to 15 days!
Some facts about the CTO: In 2008, the year the CTO was established, we approved 39 new protocols and serviced 1455 visits. By 2012, CTO activity had increased nearly 100%: 67 new protocols approved and 3368 visits! Over the 5 years of our operation, we’ve assisted 83 investigators with their research. We would be glad to add you and your study to our list of researchers who benefit from our clinical research services!
