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.
Research coordinators who are in new positions or have new responsibilities coordinating human subject research at the University are invited to request an introduction to a SCORE mentor. SCORE's mentors are experienced coordinators who can share their expertise on specific tasks or provide one-on-one professional guidance.
To request an introduction to a Mentor, to volunteer as a mentor or to request materials that may support a mentoring relationship, email SCORE.
