Academy of Research Excellence
Launched in 2012 as part of UF’s continuing commitment to excellence in health science research, the CTSI Academy of Research Excellence will help promote high-quality, innovative clinical research, with the highest regard for research integrity, ethics, professionalism and regulatory requirements.
The academy is dedicated to promoting an atmosphere of professional collegiality and openness, including active role-modeling and the mentoring of junior faculty and health science students. The academy will offer the four programs described below.
Membership in the academy is offered through a Master Certificate for Excellence in Human Subject Research and Protections Program. This advanced six-month program is intended for UF clinical investigators working with human subjects.
This advanced four-month program is designed for experienced research coordinators who are committed to becoming exemplary leaders in human subject research and protections. Completion of the program results in membership on the CTSI Academy of Research Excellence’s Research Coordinators Leadership Council.
Programs in Development
The academy is developing two additional programs expected to begin in 2013. A third program is being designed to help train investigators, research coordinators and students to effectively and appropriately ask research subjects for informed consent, using simulated subjects. A fourth program will be designed to help investigators who need specific assistance with developing skills to accomplish high-quality research meeting all regulatory and professionalism requirements.
