Clinical Research Center Costs

Beginning June 1, 2017, the CRC will change to a subsidized fee-for-service model. In the new CTSA project period, a limited amount of CTSA funding is allowed for CRC resources in small pilot studies; however, investigator-initiated sponsored studies (federal, foundation, etc.) should begin including the subsidized CRC fees in your study budget. Industry-sponsored should budget the full rate.

CRC Fee Structure (effective 6/1/2017)

(Subsidized Rate)
$25/hour ($75/hour from VICTR)
Industry Sponsored $100/hour
VICTR-Supported $100/hour

Each hour includes one CRC room, one CRC nurse or technologist, general clinical supplies, and standard meals provided by VUH Dietary Services.
