We offer all of our industry partners a significant level of collaborative support and high quality service. Our clinical research infrastructure provides the tools and resources to facilitate every aspect of a clinical trial, from idea inception to close-out. All clinical trials are managed through the University of Rochester Office of Research and Project Administration (ORPA), which reviews and approves all contractual documents.
Our dedicated research holds itself to the highest of standards when it comes to patient satisfaction, strong enrollment statistics, and the ethical conduct of clinical research. Each clinical trial poses unique recruiting, ethical, and regulatory challenges. So, we created a training program for all operations staff, which is completed in addition to any study-specific training. Adherence to our internal processes and FDA guidelines for research and good clinical practices is what leads our program to constantly evolve, improve, and efficiently provide industry sponsors with quality data and successful trials.
The Industry-Sponsored Research Program in Emergency Medicine has its own dedicated state-of-the-art BSL-2 clinical research laboratory with dedicated staff. The lab is equipped with work stations, a chemical hood, two -80 degree freezers, one -20 degree freezer, a refrigerator, and refrigerated centrifuge. Our laboratory has full capabilities to process blood, saliva, urine, and other samples for analysis and storage. In addition, the lab gives access to ship biological specimens for further testing. All instrumentation have up to date calibration documentation on file.
