MICHR's Ask the Experts - Clinical Research Management (CRM)

The Clinical Research Management Program (CRM) at MICHR provides monitoring and support services for many studies at U-M including investigator-initiated, federally funded, privately funded, and single and multi-center clinical trials. Join the CRM group at the next 'Ask the Experts' session to learn about the program and why it's here. CRM will discuss some of the services they provide and answer questions about the steps in the clinical research process that are most likely to slow us down or trip us up.
