UC Health is committed to partnering with physicians across the region to ensure optimal care for patients who need specialized health services. As the Tristate’s only academic medical center, we strive to work with communities to achieve comprehensive and collaborative approaches to improving the health of each patient. At UC Health and the Office of Clinical Research , we stand ready to work with you for the benefit of your patients’ health care outcomes.

Researchers routinely conduct industry, investigator-initiated and National Institutes of Health (NIH) sponsored clinical trials (phase I-IV) in nearly all therapeutic areas, conforming to regulatory requirements in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

Through our large network of providers and patient databases, we have access to disease-specific subject populations.

Researchers are supported by Good Clinical Practice (GCP) trained coordinators and have access to a variety of services that aid in the clinical research process, including:

• Local and central Institutional Review Boards (IRBs)
• Investigational pharmacy
• Comprehensive laboratory services
• Marketing and participant recruitment support
• Education and training
• Contracting
• Compliance and auditing
• Medicare coverage analysis
• Budgeting and billing

The Office of Clinical Research (OCR) is here to assist you with your research.
