What We Do

The Clinical Trial division at SUNY Downstate works as a hub for pharmaceutical sponsored clinical trials, biomedical device trials as well as funded Investigator-Initiated clinical trials. The Clinical Trials Office supports investigators with clinical trial startup activities, logistical support, oversight of clinical trial operations, feasibility assessment, financial management of clinical trial activities and regulatory support.

The study workflow was developed in response to the researchers to better navigate the research infrastructure of SUNY Downstate.

Need Clinical Space for your trial?

The mission of the Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) at SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University is to provide a clinical space and other support for clinical and translational scientists who conduct human subject research. Translational research beginning at the laboratory bench that leads to clinical studies performed at the CTSC should aim to translate basic scientific discoveries into novel diagnostic and therapeutic methods that improve health care. Collaborations between basic and clinical scientists are encouraged.
