The mission of the MGH Clinical Translational Research Unit Core (CTRU) is to support investigators in the discovery, development, and implementation of promising therapeutics and associated diagnostics for individuals with complex brain disorders affecting cognition, behavior, emotion, sensory and motor functioning, and other diseases as related to the brain. Under the general supervision of the CTRU Program Manager, the Clinical Research Coordinator will serve as the main point of contact for research participants enrolled in research studies conducted by investigators representing the MGH Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging and the MGH Departments of Neurology, Psychiatry and Radiology.
With supervision of each Principal Investigator, and under the guidance of the CTRU Program Manager, the successful applicant will be responsible for all aspects of clinical research/trial coordination for assigned clinical treatment trials.
These research studies will involve intensive contact with research participants. Study activities may include recruitment and screening, administration of clinical rating scale assessments, complex coordination of cognitive testing measures, EEG, MRI and PET neuroimaging, and biofluid collection. The Coordinator will be responsible for data entry and handling, monitoring quality of data, managing regulatory documents and interactions with institutional review board, managing communications with study sponsors, generating reports, and maintaining records related to the assigned research studies.
