  • Regulatory Knowledge and Support Unit
    The Regulatory Knowledge and Support (RKS) Unit assists investigators and research personnel across the institution by using a single IRB and by providing a calendar for training and educational opportunities in regulatory science and processes.
  • Participant and Clinical Interactions
    Participant and Clinical Interactions (PCI) will increase efficiencies of research administration and improve access to clinical research facilities for scientifically and ethically high-quality clinical and translational research by providing services on rigorous scientific review, research grant proposal preparation and submission, budget development and management, regulatory compliance, and research monitoring and improvement.
  • Clinical Trials Governance Board (CTGB)
    The Clinical Trials Governance Board was instituted to coordinate and oversee all clinical trial activity at UTHSC. Under the leadership of UTHSC’s Associate Vice Chancellor for Clinical Trials, the CTGB was provided with funds to support clinical trials across campus and further developing the infrastructure to create interdisciplinary Clinical and Translational Research. The CTGB’s Office of Clinical Research Development conducts educational activities and provides direct support to clinical and translational researchers in the formulation of grant proposals, development of contracts and budgets, and strategizing clinical projects for maximal impact.
