Getting Started

The Clinical Research Administration (CRA) division of the KUMC Research Institute exists to help investigators and study teams navigate local and federal administrative and regulatory requirements, in addition to budgetary and legal requirements, for clinical trials. We can assist with all aspects of trial startup, ongoing reporting, and regulatory compliance. In addition, our staff guide investigators and study team members to additional resources and support services to maximize the success of each study.

Our services are available to all KUMC faculty and staff conducting research involving human subjects at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Clinical trials receiving external funding (NIH, Industry, private foundations) are required to use the KUMC RI. We have the expertise and experience to support your project.

We encourage unfunded research projects to use the KUMC RI. Fees are waived for unfunded investigator-initiated research and for projects receiving internal funding (departmental funding, Frontiers grants, etc.). Let us know how we can help you. 

To get started, check out the CRA Roles Matrix, or if you have other questions, please contact Jennifer Staley at or by phone (913) 945-6683.
