The Pulmonary Translational Core’s (PTraC) mission is to provide specialized expertise in the areas of translational and clinical research by offering services, resources, and consultation to investigators in the Division of Pulmonary Sciences and Critical Care, while reducing the burden of research regulatory processes and easing protocol implementation. Ultimately, this allows pulmonary researchers to spend more time doing science to become more efficient and competitive.
To achieve this goal, the PTraC will have the following objectives:
The PTraC will offer a broad range of consultative services and key regulatory support at all stages of the research process (from bench-to-bedside research and beyond), which include but not limited to:
To achieve these goals, the PTraC will have divide its efforts into the following 4 cores: Translational Core (TC), Biostatistics & Bioinformatics Core (BBC), Regulatory Core (RC), and Clinical Research Core (CRC).
