CDS / ITHS Affiliation

CDS has a collaborative agreement with the Institute of Translational Health Sciences (ITHS). They offer many services to assist you with your research needs.

IRB Submission Support

We are pleased to offer Institutional Review Board application support through our partnership with the Institute of Translational Health Sciences. ITHS offers research coordinators and regulatory specialists to aid individual researchers, research programs, and departments in navigating the IRB application process.

Through this service, ITHS prepares and provides support for review of your IRB and other compliance documents to ensure completeness, adherence to application requirements, and inclusion of all required documents. Examples of specific focus areas for support include:

  • Writing and reviewing applications
  • Developing consent and HIPAA forms
  • Creating waiver requests for pre-screening
  • Developing recruitment scripts and approach letters
  • Providing graphic design of printed advertising and study logs

Protocol Development

We are pleased to offer protocol development support through our partnership with the Institute of Translational Health Sciences. ITHS offers research coordinators, regulatory specialists, research nurses, and study monitors to support protocol development and budgeting for individual researchers, research programs, and departments.

The knowledge and experience of these staffers supports you to design trials and create robust budgets that translate to feasible, appropriately resourced projects. Specific services include:

  • Completing study-related documents
  • Creating standard operating procedures
  • Developing grant budgets
  • Creating research branding and graphic design

Temporary Support for running your clinical trial

We are pleased to offer temporary, on-site staffing support services through our partnership with the Institute of Translational Health Sciences. ITHS offers research coordinators, regulatory specialists, research nurses, and study monitors to individual researchers, research programs, and departments. This staffing support is ideal for:

  • Covering temporary staff outages due to vacation or maternity
  • Bridging staffing needs between a permanent hire
  • Supplementing staff during a busy phase
  • Managing studies that require less than 50% FTE
  • Implementing and administering pilot studies

Researchers receive a detailed invoice on a monthly basis for actual hours worked rather than paying for a set amount of FTE. ITHS support is also available on demand, meaning it can flex up or down based on your unique staffing needs.
