The PI has been awarded an NIH R01 research grant which will investigate how extra beats in the top chamber of the heart contribute to the development of the most common abnormal heart rhythm, atrial fibrillation. Patient enrollment and monitoring will be facilitated by the Eureka platform, which harnesses the power of online and mobile technology to gather cardiovascular data from study participants through devices such as smartphone apps.
The Clinical Research Coordinator will perform independently or with general direction at the operational journey level of the series to execute, manage, and coordinate research protocols, as directed by the Project Manager of Specialty Centers and the PI, Chief, Section of Cardiac Electrophysiology. They may coordinate the data collection and operations of several concurrent clinical research studies under the guidelines of research protocols, UCSF and regulating agency policies.
The CRC's duties may include, but will not be limited to identifying and contacting patients for inclusion in clinical trials, attending procedures in the electrophysiology laboratory to assist in collecting clinical research data, support the management and coordinating the tasks of single or multiple clinical research studies, depending on their size and complexity; act as intermediary between services and departments while overseeing data and specimen management; manage and report on study results; create, clean, update, and manage databases and comprehensive datasets and reports, assist with training of Assistant CRCs; manage Investigator's protocols in Investigational Review Board (IRB) online system, as well as renewals and modifications of protocol applications and the implementation of new studies; participate in the review and writing of protocols to ensure institutional review board approval within University compliance; help assure compliance with all relevant regulatory agencies; oversee study data integrity; implement and maintain periodic quality control procedures; interface with departments to obtain UCSF approval prior to study initiation; maintain all regulatory documents; report study progress to investigators; participate in any internal and external audits or reviews of study protocols.
