Guidance: CHPS Facilitator

We strongly suggest that you contact one of our CHPS Facilitators as the first step to design and implement your research study. The CHPS Facilitator Program is the single point of contact for all clinical and basic science research related questions for study start-up, study conduct, and throughout the duration of a project. Whether submitting a grant application, preparing to implement a study, looking for resources to use in your study or just wanting to brainstorm about a study idea, it is important to contact the CHPS Facilitators early.
