Help with Research Projects
Medical City’s research team is staffed by veteran professionals with extensive backgrounds in clinical research. The expertise of the staff covers a wide range of disciplines including biostatistics, cardiopulmonary physiology, life sciences, medical biophysics, nursing and research administration. The department can also assist investigators in preparing scientific presentations summarizing their research study and findings. We work closely with the IRB to insure that all clinical research studies are conducted under the highest ethical and scientific standard. Also, we developed an Investigator’s Guide to help with the preparation of the required documents for IRB approval of a research study.
