Through the expertise of the VCC’s Project Managers, investigators are able to conduct their studies with new and innovative technology.
Our team excels in creating projects focused on maximizing site support, successful recruitment, and quality reporting, all in an economical model. By incorporating the FDA’s guidance for remote monitoring, and having the infrastructure and tools in house, such as REDCap, our experienced staff insures that each trial is tailored to produce sound scientific data.
Our Project Managers are able to connect with sites in a unique way as they have served as clinical research coordinators, and can help navigate sites through IRB submissions, leveraging tools to help support expedited contracting, and help navigate recruiting strategies.
Our team hosts many services that can be customized to each Investigators’ project. Our team experts will help guide each investigator through services to create a tailored project plan.
