The purpose of the UNC-NCRP is to promote excellence in the conduct of clinical, social, behavioral, and translational research by providing a mechanism for sharing best practices and by promoting education and professional development and mentoring programs.
Through the listserv, a variety of information will be shared including a DID YOU KNOW SERIES, updates from the IRB (Institutional Review Board), OCT (Office of Clinical Trials), CTRC (Clinical and Translational Research Center), and other research units; information about educational opportunities; social networking events; and information about best practices.

The UNC-NCRP Steering Committee was formed in November 2011 and has been working on projects that were identified as opportunities for the Human Subjects Research community. During this time, we have begun our educational seminars, e.g., Clinical Research 101: Who's Who at UNC? and have started certification study groups for those research professionals who desire to become certified through one of the national research organizations (SoCRA or ACRP).
Coming this Fall will be the release of the Standard Operating Procedures Templates for Human Subjects Research; the official launch of our mentoring program; and the Research Coordinator Handbook.
Details on these will be forthcoming on the listserv, so join the NCRP listserv today.
We look forward to working with you to enhance human subjects research at UNC-Chapel Hill!
