The mission of the Office of Clinical Research (OCR) is to provide faculty with resources, information and expertise in clinical research to advance knowledge related to human disease and healthcare.

The OCR facilitates the process of conducting clinical research, from inception through completion, with the goal of scientific discovery to facilitate prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease and to improve healthcare. We are committed to streamlining procedures and enhancing services for clinical investigators and research staff, affiliate partners, extramural sponsors and research volunteers. The strategic services, education and training, and comprehensive review process provided by the OCR are designed to foster research teams throughout the USF community. OCR is managed within the Office of Research for the Morsani College of Medicine.

The OCR recognizes that the clinical research environment is fluid and we anticipate our services to evolve to meet the needs of our clinical research colleagues within the USF community and to the community at large. Please visit our site often and contact our office directly for information on how we can meet your individual requests.
