SC CTSI Administration provides leadership, direction and support to SC CTSI core groups in areas of strategic and financial planning, development and integration of programs and services, cross-program communications, human resources, contracts and grants, and space and facilities management. The Administration team also serves as the liaison to SC CTSI stakeholders, including institutional leaders at USC and CHLA, the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services, the National Institutes of Health, the national CTSA consortium, and community organizations throughout Los Angeles.
The Programmatic Development office supports the design and launch of new resources and initiatives in collaboration with institute directors and all eight core groups.
Past projects included the Clinical Research Coordinator staffing service, the university-wide lean process improvement initiative, and the partnership with Los Angeles County Department of Health Services.
New projects include applying lean process improvement to make our institute more efficient, implementing Quality by Design to increase trial success, adapting SC CTSI resources to support remote research, and redesigning Safety Net Innovation Awards to include in-depth training and mentorship.
