Research

The NJMS Office of Clinical Research Administration (OCRA) was established to provide centralized oversight of the clinical research conducted on the Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS) Newark Campus.  The primary focus of OCRA review is research billing compliance and to facilitate registration of studies with University Hospital.

Depending upon the study, OCRA review may be required, UH registration may be required, or both. 

 

When is University Hospital Registration required?

What is a University Hospital “Research Plan” and when is one required?

When is NJMS-OCRA review required?

Study involving administration of a questionnaire or similar process conducted in a UH facility

Study involving administration of a questionnaire or similar process NOT conducted in a UH facility (i.e. questionnaire or similar research procedures conducted in an NJMS clinic/facility or elsewhere)

Study involving UH as a recruitment site only (i.e. no research procedures conducted at a UH facility, no UH resources will be used; all research procedures will be conducted at an NJMS facility or elsewhere)

Research Laboratory Sample Analysis study with subjects seen at a UH facility (samples analyzed in a research laboratory but with no use of UH clinical laboratory or any UH resources or services)

Prospective Observational Cohort Study involving collection of clinical and/or laboratory data conducted at a UH facility

Clinical Trial involving Drug, Device or other intervention involving a UH facility or UH resources

Clinical Trial involving Drug, Device or other intervention but NOT involving a UH facility or UH resources

What is the purpose of OCRA review?

How is OCRA review done?

How do I complete the Billing Plan?

How do we account for tests ordered at a higher frequency than would ordinarily occur in clinical practice?

What if the protocol is amended?
