Clinical Research Administration, formerly known as the Division of Clinical Trials, is the central liaison between the funding agency, Institutional Review Board and principal investigators at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Our goal is to provide timely and efficient clinical trial initiation by managing the administrative aspects of the trial.
KUMC's 387 faculty investigators represent 226 subspecialties, offering expertise in all areas of clinical trials. Over 100 experienced study coordinators in various departments assure quality care and reliable case reports. As a regional health center treating 30,000 emergency patients, 18,000 inpatients, and 350,000 outpatients KUMC provides a large, diverse patient population for highly successful subject recruitment.
Clinical Research Administration markets the University of Kansas Medical Center to potential research sponsors, receives and manages protocol initiation, and provides ongoing administrative support to ensure timely and cost-effective completion of clinical trials.
