Research Project Navigators


CTSI Research Project Navigators advise research teams on available resources and help them navigate research-related processes. They serve as a central resource through which researcher inquiries and requests for assistance are managed and supported; information is available through personalized consultation and the CTSI portal. The navigators continuously improve their methods to address changing needs, the changing environment and user feedback.

Resources Consultation

Navigators can advise investigators on available resources across the CTSI and help them access these resources.

Study Implementation

CTSI Research Project Navigators are well versed in IRB application preparation, protocol development, Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines, and NIH research rules and standards for the design, conduct, performance, monitoring, data collection, management and analysis, and reporting of clinical trials. Through consultation, we help investigators assemble research teams to conduct studies, oversee study management, and aid in the timely completion of the study.
