The Drug Development Unit has been organized to provide all the personnel resources and services necessary to design, execute, analyze, and report a clinical research protocol. While our focus and expertise is in the area of inpatient studies of drugs, we offer support for other studies requiring close clinical monitoring. Typically, funding sources are identified by the faculty investigator, but we can provide assistance in identifying industrial sponsors, or in preparation of clinical budgets and protocols to support grant submissions.
