The Center for Interventional Cardiovascular Research and Clinical Trials team is comprised of physician researchers, project management, and bioinformatics personnel. We also take pride in the quality of work produced by our global site teams and the input of their investigators and staff members. Another great source of input is our diverse, international roster of research scholars, who come to us from leading international academic organizations to gain research training. Together, we provide comprehensive support services for every stage of clinical study as well as the global dissemination of important new health data.
Our Global Site Network
The Center for Interventional Cardiovascular Research and Clinical Trials has a vast Global Site Network consisting of hundreds of collegial research sites around the world. To date, we have successfully completed regulatory filings in many countries including the United States, Canada, China, India, Israel as well as several countries in the EU. We also work closely with a number of highly respected global contract research organizations (CROs) to identify sites, and to implement and monitor studies. 95% of our sites have worked with us on more than one trial and 100% of our sites surveyed recently indicated they would like to work with us in future.
Many of our studies are collaborative across the globe. Working within our established network of biostatisticians, analysts, clinical research specialists and our global team of investigators, study designs are developed with global impact in mind.
Research Opportunities: It is an important goal to give back to our global community in the most profound way we can, with information and inspiration. Our visiting research scholars and volunteers play an important role and learn from a broad palette of opportunities, ranging from data analysis and retrospective reviews to assisting with the conduct of prospective clinical research projects. Under the tutelage of the Center’s senior clinical research faculty and in synergistic collaboration with other scholars from prominent institutions around the world, our researchers are mentored and guided through the full lifecycle of the research process. During rotations of at least one to two years, our researchers may be involved in every aspect of clinical research: identifying areas of unmet need, writing study protocols and statistical analysis plans, participating in study coordination, preparing abstracts and scientific presentations and writing manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
