Workshop: Clinical trial value adds for faculty

October 27, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The clinical trial landscape is evolving at a rapid pace and Michigan Medicine realized that it needed to transform to continue as a research leader. The Clinical Trials Support Office is thus charged to create the new knowledge needed to improve clinical care, value and health outcomes through clinical trial research.

Collectively, this initiative is called the Clinical Trial Transformation. Seminar participants will leave with an understanding of how they, their teams and their trials receive support in the harmonized processes that are now in place across the medical school.


  • Illustrate the value adds for faculty within the Clinical Trials Support Units and OnCore, U-M’s Clinical Trial Management System
  • Define the PI role and responsibilities within the new Clinical Trials infrastructure
  • Facilitate faculty partnership with Clinical Trials Support Units
  • Inform faculty of NIH policy changes, provide guidance and support to comply with these and all policies.

Date: Friday, Nov. 17

Time: 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. (Lunch provided)

Location: BSRB Seminar Rooms, first floor
