SCORE: Study Coordinators Organization for Research & Education

SCORE provides support and regular networking opportunities to University research coordinators and staff. The participants of this UR CTSI-sponsored group meet to share information, collaborate, develop tools and best practices and learn of University processes related to human subject research management.

Jump to: Professional Development and Forums | Annual Awards


This is an informal program. Many of SCORE's members are experienced coordinators who can share their expertise on specific tasks or provide one-on-one professional guidance to coordinators who are in new positions or have new responsibilities coordinating human subject research at the University. Email SCORE for more information.
