Our Structure: A Comprehensive,Broad Based GCRC • Adult Inpatient • Adult Outpatient • Pediatric Inpatient • Pediatric Outpatient • SLRHC: Inpatientand Outpatient • Core Laboratory • Bionutrition Core • Informatics Core • Biostatistics Resource
Support for Research and Training • 75 Investigators and their staffs • 80-100 protocols • 2000-2005: 600 peer reviewed papers, reviews, chapters • K30 Award: MS in Biostatistics: Patient Oriented Research (40 graduates since 1999; 16 active students) • K12 Scholars Award: (4 graduates since 2003; 3 carryover scholars): 75% salary support plus research funds
Limitations of the GCRC • Surrounded by walls • Limited core support services • Limited training funds • No mission to affect the way research is conducted
Our Mission Train and mentor a new generation of multidisciplinary C/T investigators Expand and optimize the utilization of outstanding new and existing resources at CUMC Support pre-clinical and clinical departments in the recruitment and retention of outstanding C/T investigators at CUMC To change the way people think about and conduct research at CUMC

Regulatory Issues • 4 IRBs • CUMC, NYS Psychiatric Institute, WIRB, St. Lukes- Roosevelt • CTSA Advisory Committee Review is not integrated with IRB review • 2 CTSAs (Columbia and Weill Cornell) share 1 hospital New York-Presbyterian
Goals for Clinical Research Center • Continue to provide both inpatient and outpatient space and dedicated personnel for patient-oriented research. • Expand support for patient oriented research beyond the confines of the Clinical Research Center (CRC). • Partner with the Community Engagement Resource (CER) to enhance off-site research.
Implementation and Oversight: Changing the Culture CUMC 2006: 807 new protocols, 1563 renewals • Pilot survey of inpatient units (Neurology and Pediatric Oncology) • Collaboration between CRC, hospital and School of Nursing to assess staff knowledge, develop and implement research curriculum for nurses, PAs, MDs. • Develop a mechanism to Identify participants in research protocols.
Implementation and Oversight: Research in the ICUs and Emergency Departments • New York State has no statute or regulation that clearly identifies a legally authorized representative, and no case law that resolves the issue. • This situation prevents research in critical care units and Emergency Departments. • 18 clinical trials unable to enroll any patients or where enrollment was reduced by 50%. • In collaboration with Dean’s office and University Counsel, we have documented need for change in the New York State Legally Authorized Representative law.
Regulatory Knowledge Support And Ethics Resource • Education/Training • Revised Good Clinical Practice requirement – awaiting institutional approval • Bimonthly workshops on regulatory and ethical issues – growing attendance • Research staff and investigators have had little training in legal/ethical theory of informed consent • Provide IRB/HIPAA training • basic (2 hr), advanced (6 wks) – tracking results • Department-specific presentations
Adult ED: Research Participation Current Investigators 3/13 (23.1%) MDs 1/22 (4.5%) nurses 0/8 (0%) EMS Past Investigators 8/13 (61.5%) MDs 3/22 (13.6%) nurses 1/8 (12.5%) EMS
HIPPA (Research) Certification No Certification in HIPPA for Research 6/13 (46.2%) physicians 19/22 (86.4%) nurses 7/8 (87.5%) EMS ½
Challenges • What level of protocol review and data safety monitoring is required for CTSA protocols? • What is the most efficient means to educate MDs, nurses, health professionals and participants? • How do we develop a process to permit clinically important research with adults who lack decisional capacity in NY?
