As part of the strategic research initiative, Fast Forward Clinical Trials (FFCT) is engaging the entire UMHS in creating a new model to improve clinical care, value, and health outcomes by successfully executing a diverse portfolio of high-quality clinical trials. This new model entails an organizational structure of local clinical trial support units (CTSUs), central infrastructure, and governance oversight. The CTSUs are trans-departmental and thematically aligned based on research foci. CTSUs are the local groups that provide comprehensive pre- and post-award support to study teams, offering high-quality, efficient service in support of a mix of clinical trials. These support units will provide a professional environment of expert personnel accessible to all investigators, especially early-career faculty. The Medical School Office of Research and the Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research (MICHR) are responsible for the central services, providing enterprise-wide standards, policies, and common infrastructure that can be leveraged by the support units and study teams. The entire system is governed by the Medical School Office of Research in partnership with the Clinical Trials Subcommittee of the Research Board of Directors.
