The University of Kentucky Clinical Research Support Office (CRSO) supports investigators and clinical research coordinators across campus to conduct clinical research.
We review all clinical research studies to determine if a coverage analysis is needed and if the study is required to be tracked in the CTMS.
In addition, we can provide fee-based regulatory, recruitment, and clinical trial financial management services to assist investigators and their teams in conducting clinical research.
The CRSO holds office hours via zoom every Friday from 10-11. Please contact CTMS.Support@uky.edu for zoom information.
Clinical Trials Administrative Support and Billing Integrity
All clinical trials and research studies, regardless of the funding source, must be submitted to the CRSO for OnCore tracking, detailed calendars and coverage analysis and billing review prior to budget finalization.
We have developed a few guidance documents (see helpful links below) to assist your teams in understanding the various processes and what documents and information you need to submit.
