The Study Coordinator (CRC) is a research professional who specializes in working with and under the direction of the Clinical Investigator. While the Clinical Investigator is primarily responsible for the overall conduct, and management of the clinical trial at the investigator site, the study coordinator supports, facilitates and coordinates the daily clinical trial activities and plays a critical role in the conduct of the study. By assuming these responsibilities, the study coordinator works with the clinical investigator, research department, sponsor, CRO, the and institution to support and provide guidance on the administration of the compliance, financial, personnel and other related aspects of the clinical study. The study coordinator may be in direct control of recruitment and retention of research subjects for the research study. A few standard tasks performed by a study coordinator include patient registration/randomization, recruitment follow-up, CRF completion, collaboration with the CRAs, Serious Adverse Events (SAE) reporting, investigator file handling, and preparing the site for and/or attending audits. study coordinators are also involved in administrative activities (such as IRB submission and scheduling patients’ appointments), and various clinical activities (inclusion/exclusion criteria assessment and completion of scales/questionnaires) if qualified and designated by the Clinical Investigator to do so.
