Services and Facilities
The CTRC is comprised of various units and core services designed to facilitate the research process. Each unit or core is overseen by a director who has extensive expertise and serves as a resource for investigators and trainees. Investigators are strongly encouraged to discuss their proposed project with appropriate unit directors prior to submitting a proposal to the CTRC. Hours of operation for most core areas are Monday to Friday normal business hours; you must contact the core director prior to submission if your study requires off-hour services. To submit a proposal, investigators complete an online application via the eResearch system. IRB submissions can be completed via the same mechanism simultaneous with the CTRC submission. The CTRC reviews each protocol submission; each protocol must have both IRB and CTRC approval prior to utilization of CTRC services and resources. Investigators who are not based at CHOP must contact CTRC Administrators for specific submission instructions.
