Protocol Submission Procedures

As a core of VCU’s Center for Clinical and Translational Research (CCTR), CRS is a cost-recovery service center that is requested as an ancillary service.

To access services of the CRS, please complete the following steps:

  1. Submit a request using our online ancillary service request form. This form can be used to request any service offered by CRS, including budget, regulatory, CRSU, nursing, and coordinator services.
  2. A service quote will be provided based on your request. Please use this to budget appropriately in your grant submission.
  3. A service agreement will be provided for your review and signature. CRS cannot begin work on your project until we receive the signed agreement.
  4. Upon receipt of the signed service agreement, CRS will begin providing you the support you need to submit a successful application and execute your study.

Should you have any questions about this process or the CRS in general, please contact Lydia Klinger, CRS Director of Business Operations, at lydia.klinger@vcuhealth.org.
