  • I only need help with phlebotomy. Can I still use the CCIT?
    Yes. We can provide phlebotomy services at a very competitive price. You will need to ensure your protocol has been approved by CCIT.
  • Can my research coordinator use available space in the CCIT?
    You or your designate can only use the CCIT workstation area on the days when you have your study participant(s) in the CCIT.
  • Why is there a difference in study cost for investigator initiated vs industry sponsored?
    CCIT's goal is to enable investigator initiated research while also retaining the ability to support industry sponsored trials. Cost for investigator initiated studies will be reduced as much as feasible, while full cost will be charged for industry sponsored trials.
