CRI to lead development of new BSD-wide clinical trials management system

By | CTMS, News | No Comments

Following a competitive proposal process, the Center for Research Informatics has been selected to lead the development of an enterprise clinical trials management system to be used for clinical research efforts across the University of Chicago Biological Sciences Division. The project was officially launched last week at a meeting led by Dean Kenneth Polonsky and attended by the Advisory Group for the project, a broad group of information technology leaders from across the University.

Over the coming months, the CRI will lead the process of designing and building a new system and integrating it with the BSD information systems already in place. We are now building our team for this project – see the job opening for a Senior Program Manager here. As the development phase is completed, this team will lead a new branch of the CRI dedicated to maintaining the system and supporting BSD clinical informatics as a whole.

The CRI is excited to be taking on this ambitious, high-impact project and we look forward to keeping you updated as our team grows and work on the system progresses.
