Office of Clinical Research Update
The Office of Clinical Research will administratively move from UC Health to UC’s College of Medicine on Thursday, July 1 and will continue providing researchers with the support needed to conduct clinical trials. A major milestone was recently reached when a master agreement between UC and UC Health was finalized and signed. This agreement will guide us in the transfer of the office and how we conduct the office’s operations.
On July 1, all new contracts will begin being processed by UC rather than UC Health. Existing contracts will continue with UC Health until their conclusion unless assigned to UC. Anyone with contracting questions can contact the contracts team. For all other move questions, please contact Maria Stivers or Zach Johnson.
As of now, your interactions with the Office of Clinical Research will not change. We are planning to enhance the support we provide to clinical researchers, to make processes as smooth and easy as possible and to build a research infrastructure that is less complicated and more efficient. We will alert you to these changes as they progress and are implemented.
Most of our staff will continue to work remotely until our new offices on the G Level of the Medical Sciences Building are ready for occupancy. We are continuing to plan for our physical move to ensure a smooth change.
Thank you for your patience. We are here to help you and want to do everything we can to support your clinical research. For additional information about the office move, please visit here. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
With the anticipated move of the Office of Clinical Research to UC College of Medicine, it seems to be a good time to freshen up the office with a new name. Dr. Brett Kissela and the OCR are interested in your ideas, serious or fun, to promote the move. Best name chosen by Dr. Kissela wins a prize! Submit your suggestions today!
