The Clinical Research Services Core (CRSC) is an outgrowth of the Nemours Clinical Pharmacology Research Program, which was originally developed to provide oversight and facilitation of clinical trials for Nemours investigators. With the development of the Center for Pediatric Research and support by the COBRE award, the CRSC has expanded to include ten full time study coordinators who directly serve the needs of both Center investigators as well as other Nemours investigators whose research involves human subjects, including children. The core staff includes trained study coordinators who assist with study design, subject recruitment and database management, and also facilitate interactions with the Institutional Review Board by working with the target investigators and other Nemours faculty on protocol development and consent and assent documents to ensure that they meet institutional and federal requirements. The activities of this group of talented study coordinators are central to the success of the translational studies being conducted through the Center of Pediatric Research and more broadly at our institution.
