The JCTO serves as a central resource for the review, negotiation and approval of contracts and agreements required to conduct clinical research. One of the main purposes of these agreements is to protect the rights of the PI and WCM/NYP. All contracts and agreements related to clinical research must be reviewed and approved by the JCTO prior to execution.
There are several steps involved in the contracting process as illustrated in the above diagram and as described within the subsequent pages.
