Brushing Up On Clinical Research Conduct and Ethics?

March 05, 2018

The Clinical Research Training and Mentoring Program (CRTMP)

Did you know that the CVD’s Drs. Edelman and Campbell work one-on-one with Principal Investigators (PIs) to solve unique scientific and regulatory dilemmas associated with their research protocols? Specifically, they help researchers design, write, and organize research protocols in compliance with institutional review board (IRB) policies and regulations and submit new or revised protocols to the IRB. This customized instruction has been proven to strengthen the design and conduct of clinical research studies and expedite protocol approval by the IRB.

The goals of the CRTMP are to:

  • Improve the quality of human subjects research
  • Improve morale and retention of clinical research faculty and staff
  • Ease the burden of regulatory review

The CRTMP is housed within the Human Research Protections Office (HRPO) of the UMB. The CRTMP assists faculty researchers in the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Nursing, Social Work, Law, and the Graduate School. Since its inception in February 2012, the CRTMP has received a total of 273 requests for individualized protocol assistance from 251 UMB PIs.

For questions about the CRTMP process, contact Tony Sadzewicz at the HRPO.
