Clinical Research

The CCTS Clinical Trials Administrative Office (CTAO) aims to bring innovative therapies to patients through the development and continual enhancement of operational excellence in the management of clinical trials. We seek to support investigative teams throughout the clinical trial lifecycle.

To achieve this, we set the following goals:

  • To enhance the efficiency, tacking, and management of clinical research activities. 
  • To serve as liaison between institutional research administration and clinical trial site personnel.
  • To adequately support investigators and their research staff in clinical trial management and compliant research billing practices.
  • To effectively communicate acceptable research activity designation billed within appropriate billing guidelines.

The CCTS CTAO is the oversight office charged with the enterprise-wide rollout and operation of OnCore, a clinical trials management system (CTMS) that is replacing the current system, SiteMinder, and which promises to transform clinical trial processes at the HUB and beyond.
