Our clinical research services core offers three distinct facilities to fulfill the data requirements of clinical trials needing approval by a regulatory agency.
- The Academic Office of Clinical Trials provides resources for conducting innovative, sponsored clinical research, including regulatory coordination, integration of research operations, liaison services to industry sponsors, and staff development opportunities.
- The Cockrell Center for Advanced Therapeutics promotes and supports clinical research operations at Houston Methodist. A full range of outpatient clinical care and study management services includes regulatory submissions and budget management support.
- The Cockrell Center Phase 1 Unit conducts early phase clinical trials. Facilities include exam rooms, private infusion rooms and a lab specimen processing area. The unit’s staff specializes in research nursing and coordinating services for client-sponsored projects.
The Clinical Research Services Core delivers excellence in standards of care and research integrity for client-sponsored clinical trials, focused on yielding rigorous data for regulatory agency review.
