A standalone protocol is considered best practice for human subjects research. The Wright Center is excited to make Protocol Builder available to all members of the VCU community. Protocol Builder is a secure, cloud-based technology with 11 unique protocol templates which set the outline and structure for your research protocol. See other protocol templates and guidelines available on the Protocol Development page.
Good studies do not just happen. They require planning, preparation, and compliance with regulations. Wright Center experts and tools can help ensure everything is in place in time for you to enroll your first study participant.
Data is the backbone of research. Whether it is a chart review of de-identified data or highly sensitive longitudinal data requiring overnight stays and complex procedures, the Wright Center’s tools, facilities, and services are available to help you ensure your data is collected accurately and stored securely.
Even the best planned study cannot run itself. Studies need to be managed and monitored throughout data collection. The Wright Center provides services and tools to help you manage your project.
You’ve finished your data collection – that’s an accomplishment! The Wright Center provides services and tools to help you transform your data into something publishable and to help ensure that you’ve completed all the required steps when closing a study.
