Hinda and Arthur Marcus Institute for Aging Research staff are required to take the following trainings every three years. All of these trainings are available on the CITI website.
Good Clinical Practice:
Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training is required every three years for Investigators and clinical trial site staff who are responsible for the conduct, management and oversight of NIH-funded clinical trials.
Clinical trial: is defined by NIH as a research study in which one or more human subjects are prospectively assigned to one or more interventions (which may include placebo or other control) to evaluate the effects of those interventions on health-related biomedical or behavioral outcomes.
Clinical trial staff: Individuals, identified by the investigator, who are responsible for study coordination, data collection and data management. The central focus of clinical trial staff is to manage participant recruitment and enrollment, to maintain consistent study implementation, data management, and to ensure integrity and compliance with regulatory and reporting requirements. These individuals may also seek informed consent from prospective participants, enroll and meet with research participants, and collect and record information from research participants. Clinical trial staff may also be called the research coordinator, study coordinator, research nurse, study nurse or sub-investigator.
Investigator: The individual responsible for the conduct of the clinical trial at a trial site. If a clinical trial is conducted by a team of individuals at a trial site, the investigator is the responsible leader of the team and may be called the principal investigator.
If you have any questions about these trainings, or access to trainings, please contact Research Administration.
