The Sentara Health Research Center clinical trials office guides interested sponsors, physicians and specialized research teams through the clinical trials process from proof of concept to exciting medical discoveries.
Our cohesive team and centralized clinical trials office handle the administrative tasks necessary to begin your trial, such as budgeting, contracts and review board approvals. We analyze whether the trial is the right fit for all parties by considering equipment, logistics, staffing and patient population.
Once a trial is underway, our clinical trials management system tracks all studies, patient participants, and research phases as it progresses.
Our research nurses and coordinators work with patients, principal investigators and other physicians to manage our trials. As always, we commit to our patients and their families that their care, safety and privacy come first. We provide patients interested in clinical trials with extensive information about the benefits and risks. They may leave the trial at any time.
Many of our patients are eager to participate in trials, not just for their care and prognosis but to advance research for others diagnosed with the same condition.
