Clinical Trials Financial Services
CTSI's Clinical Trials Financial Services team supports clinical trials by providing staff skilled in understanding and negotiating budgets, as well as providing financial management and oversight of clinical trials.
Our experienced financial professionals work closely with health sciences project managers and clinical coordinators to develop accurate clinical trial budgets, negotiate fiscally sound contracts, and provide financial management throughout the life of the trial.
From initial negotiations to eventual close-out, our dedicated team negotiates, analyzes, recommends, and regularly reviews the financial components of a clinical trial. This enables the principal investigator and study team to respond to issues in a timely manner, often preventing cost overruns.
Clinical Trials Financial Services specializes in support for clinical trials that have per subject, per milestone payment schedules, in contrast to a fixed grant award. Most studies we support are funded by Business and Industry, but may also support studies funded by Cooperative Groups, University Consortiums, Federal agencies, or foundations.
How we support clinical trials
How to receive support
In order to access services, a study team’s department/division must have a service agreement with CTSI. We currently support research teams from the University’s Masonic Cancer Center, Department of Pediatrics, Department of Psychiatry, and the Department of Medicine's Divisions of Cardiology and Hematology, Oncology and Transplantation.
