POLICY


  1. The UIC Clinical Research Center (CRC) reviews research to be performed at or by the staff of the UIC CRC.  The purpose of the CRC is to make clinical translational research happen in a predictable and reproducible fashion.  In addition, the CRC  offers expertise and resources that help bring to fruition study protocols for investigators who might lack certain research resources or personnel needed for a particular protocol, as the CRC has or can obtain physical resources needed to perform specialized studies.  The CRC emphasizes the safe and ethical conduct of clinical research, while at the same time fostering education of future clinical translation research scientists. 
  2. The CRC performs a feasibility, risk/safety, and utilization assessment of all new clinical research studies that will utilize the CRC.  Final IRB approval of new protocols will not occur until documentation of CRC review has been received.
