Clinical Research Support

Keck School of Medicine at USC is committed to promoting health and improving outcomes for individuals and the society through its medical research.

Two centralized Clinical Research Support offices at USC and CHLA provide access to advice and assistance for developing, activating, conducting and reporting clinical research studies and clinical trials.

The focus of the CRS team is to assist with non-cancer clinical studies, as CISO at USC supports cancer studies.

CRS functions as the single stop for accessing all of the services an investigator may need by offering quality support for every phase of a study, including budgeting, recruiting, and study coordinators.

We look forward to the opportunity to help make your study a success.

Sincerely,



April W. Armstrong, MD MPH
Associate Dean for Clinical Research
Director of Clinical Research Support, Southern California CTSI
Vice Chair and Associate Professor of Dermatology
Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California
