Protocol Development

Protocol Development

Our team of protocol developers will help prepare animal and human research studies by providing technical, administrative and scientific support for the development and preparation of ethically compliant research protocols. The developers will also serve as liaisons between investigators and other research staff and associates, help write animal or human use proposal sections, provide education and training on protocol development, and assist with regulatory compliance and reporting post-award.
