Clinical Research Update (CRU) Series

These programs are designed to keep clinical and translational research workforce updated on good clinical practice guidelines, to present tools and resources for successful clinical trial management, and to provide opportunities for networking and team building. Presenters include both university staff/faculty members and outside speakers who are recognized for their expertise in the topic areas.

Target audience: Research coordinators, staff, and investigators directly involved in conducting clinical trials.

Continuing Education: Credit is provided for the CRU programs via the Colleges of Dentistry, Medicine, and Nursing. Because the series is accredited, the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) and Society for Clinical Research Associates (SoCRA) accepts these programs for certification maintenance.
