In accordance with the School of Medicine's decision to close operations during the winter break, the Research Management Group (RMG) offices will be closed from Dec 21, 2016– Jan 3, 2017.  RMG staff will not be available during this period.  The office will re-open for business on Wednesday, January 4, 2017.

Please notify your RPM or Fellowship Manager immediately of your intent to submit an application so that the budget preparation and PDRF routing processes can begin.  We recommend notifying RMG 4-6 weeks in advance of the sponsor deadline.

To ensure timely budget development and contract negotiation for industry-funded clinical trials, please note the following:

Clinical Trial contracts that must be completed before December 31, 2016:

The contract must be fully executed by all parties Wednesday, November 30, 2016 in order to allow sufficient time to issue an Award Acceptance Notification (AAN) and establish the PTA and 98-accounts.  OSR has said that to issue an NOA by Dec 20 they must have all necessary information” for PTA set-up from the department by Tuesday, December 6, 2016 @ 5 PM.

If you are not already working with a CT RPM or CCTO Financial Analyst on a final budget for your industry-funded study, it will be extremely unlikely that we will be able to complete the study budget and contract before the December 8 deadline.

Contact your CT RPM or CCTO Financial Analyst if you have questions about processing of clinical trials.

In the event of an emergency during the closure, please leave a voicemail message at 650-725-0661.  Be sure to leave a call-back number.  Voicemail will be monitored and your call will be returned.
