Research Coordinator Brown Bag Series
This series has been developed to provide structured training to coordinators, managers, and administrators working in clinical or behavioral research, in a free, one hour monthly lunch time format. The goal of this program is to provide training, professional development and networking opportunities for our research professionals. This program is a joint venture between the Center for Clinical Studies, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, and the Clinical Research Training Center.
Workshop introduction to clinical research at Washington University put on twice a year by the Human Research Protection Office for newly hired clinical research staff. Necessary Elements in the Fundamentals of Human Subjects Research was founded in 2004 and is a foundation course. The course is intended to provide participants with information from as many regulatory and clinical areas involved in human subjects research as possible so that the attendees are exposed to the research enterprise that governs research as well as the various types of studies found under the umbrella of human subjects research. There is a small cost to take this course.
