The Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM)/NewYork-Presbyterian (NYP) Joint Clinical Trials Office (JCTO) provides three main areas of support to investigators and study teams in the management of clinical trials. The business operations arm manages budgeting, finance and contracts. The clinical trial operations arm administers the Clinical Study Evaluation Committee (CSEC) and assists in regulatory, data management, quality assurance, training and study feasibility, in the areas of General and Cancer clinical trials. The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) oversees the operations of the Institutional Review Board (IRB), Data Safety and Monitoring Board (DSMB) and Conflicts of Interest (COI).
