About Office of Clinical Research
Welcome to the Office of Clinical Research (OCR) at Nova Southeastern University. The OCR is a unit under the direction of the Vice President for Research and Technology Transfer. The OCR supports faculty investigators, before, during and after a clinical trial. OCR assists faculty investigators to manage clinical research activities through consultation, advocacy, tools, communication and best-practice solutions.
OCR works with faculty investigators to determine study feasibility, participates in budget development, and establishes financial systems for clinical trials to assign individual study accounts. Contract review and negotiation services provided by the office advocate for the faculty investigators.
The faculty investigator may request assistance with Institutional Review Board submissions and the development of informed consent documents.
The OCR provides resources and educational tools for faculty investigators to conduct clinical trials in accordance with regulatory guidelines.
