P-CRI Services

The goal of the Psychiatry Clinical Research Infrastructure (P-CRI) is to provide a comprehensive system of clinical research support. A critical component of P-CRI services is research administration. The program assists researchers with study initiation, regulatory compliance, procurement, and the development and maintenance of research databases.

The P-CRI also offers support and consultation on neurocognitive assessment administration, phenotyping and other biomarkers. In addition the P-CRI provides assistance with statistical analysis and training, and with grant, IRB, and manuscript submissions. Limited services are available to senior trainees through the sponsorship of a faculty member.
