The Clinical Trials Office assists investigators, scholars and staff in the conduct of clinical research by providing managed navigation through research-related resources and services available at UC Davis. Whether you have an idea, are applying for a grant, or trying to implement a new trial, our experts are available to assist with expert consultations or hands-on activities. We guide investigational teams through the myriad of local, state, and federal requirements. Our team of highly trained clinical research coordinators, regulatory analysts, and budget specialists are available to assist investigators in conducting and supporting all phases of a clinical research protocol.
When you contact the Clinical Trials Office for services, the Navigation Project Manager will review your project needs, discuss specifics and create a project plan that may involve additional experts from other areas of knowledge. Consultations are free of charge. Should you need a team to manage your study, a Resource Prioritization Committee will review your request and advise on the next steps. We will allocate staff based on expertise and availability. We track project hours in a time tracking system and provide a detailed account of all hours spent. If the study is funded, services are charged to the grant at the hourly rates, and billed monthly.
Investigators who have not yet competed successfully for a substantial NIH (National Institutes of Health) research grant but have received a small grant (R03) or an Exploratory, Developmental Research Grant Award (R21) and those within 10 years of completing a terminal research degree, medical residency, or equivalent may request additional financial consideration. Clinical and Translational Science Center management will consider requests based on the scientific merit of the project.
