The Project FAQs

Poster board

         1.What is a Clinical research associate (CRA)?

A Clinical Research Associate, also known as a Monitor, is an individual that oversees the progress and conduct of a clinical trial. A clinical trial is usually implemented by physicians at a hospital, clinic, or physician's office. The CRA is required to oversee the initiation, progress, and conduct of the clinical trial to ensure the scientific integrity of the data collected, and the protection of the rights, safety, and well-being of human study subjects.

The CRA’s responsibilities include but are not limited to the following:

  • Monitoring that the physician adheres to Good Clinical Practices and the study protocol.
  • Performing study drug accountability;
  • Verifying the documentation of the informed consent process for each study subject;
  • Ensuring that non-serious and serious adverse experiences are properly documented and reported.
  • Reviewing the case report form against the subject's medical record for completeness and accuracy;
  • Ensuring the filing and maintenance of the required regulatory documents.

The CRA is usually employed by a pharmaceutical company, contract research organization, academic institution, or site management organization. A CRA can work either in-house or in the field, requiring 50-70% travel. A field monitor will visit multiple sites and interacts with the study coordinator and the investigator conducting the trial.

           2.What is a Clinical Data Manager? 

A clinical trial is a research study conducted in humans and designed to answer specific questions using scientifically controlled methods. These trials require considerable effort to assure that the data obtained are reliable, reproducible, and readily available. Data managers play a key role in this research effort.

The clinical data manager plays a key role in the setup and conduct of a clinical trial. The data collected during a clinical trial forms the basis of subsequent safety and efficacy analysis which in turn drive decision making on product development in the pharmaceutical industry. Clinical Data Managers apply knowledge of health care and database management to analyze clinical data, and to identify and report trends.

The CDM responsibilities include but are not limited to the following:

  • Design protocol specific electronic case report forms (eCRFs)
  • Generate data queries based on validation checks or errors and omission indentified during data entry
  • Prepare data analysis listings and activity, performance, or progress reports
  • Monitor operations activities to ensure compliance with regulation or SOPs.
  • Organize on-going data review throughout the study to ensure timely identification and correction of errors or discrepancies
  • Communicates site data concerns/issues with clinical study sites and clinical operations team in order to ensure timely resolution

The CDM is usually employed by a pharmaceutical company, contract research organization, academic institution, or site management organization. A CDM can work either in-house or remote. There is no traveling required for this position.

        3.What is the average salary that CRA and data manager make? 

On average, CRAs and data manager make 75,000 a year. This rate pertain to entry-level jobs.

        4. What challenges do your business face? 

Our biggest challenge is identifying funding support that students often require. Another challenge is developing  diverse marketing processes that reach potential students.
