Getting Started

The Clinical Research Administration division of the KUMC Research Institute exists to help investigators and study teams to navigate internal and external regulatory processes for clinical trials. We can assist with all aspects of trial startup, ongoing reporting, and regulatory compliance. In addition, our staff can guide investigators to additional resources to maximize the success of each study.

Our services are available to all investigators conducting research involving human subjects at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Clinical trials receiving external funding (NIH, Industry, private foundations) are required to utilize CRA services for budget/contracting and IRB submission. Fees are waived for unfunded investigator-initiated research and for projects receiving internal funding (departmental funding, Frontiers grants, etc.). Investigators are encouraged to make use of our services. 

To get started, check out the CRA Roles Matrix, or if you have other questions, please contact Caroline Murray via e-mail at or by phone (913) 588-5718.
