Office of Clinical Trials
The Office of Clinical Trials (OCT) supports clinical trials and focuses on streamlining the development, approval, activation, enrollment and expand
completion of drug and device trials. We serve both industry-sponsored and investigator-initiated studies, assist in recruitment, help prepare IRB submissions, build and negotiate budgets, manage contracting and engage in business development. read more...
Clinical Research Center
The Clinical Research Center (CRC) units are dedicated to patient-oriented research on both East (Einstein) and West (Moses) Campuses. expand
The units provide staff and dedicated space for adult and pediatric studies. Facilities are available for physical exams, intensive procedures, private interviews, and most types of data collection. Inpatient beds are also available on a per diem basis. Assistance with recruitment is also available.
Biomedical Research Informatics
The mission of the Research Informatics Core (RIC) is to support the clinical data pipeline for Einstein and Montefiore centers, departments, and institutes using best practices established within the CTSA. expand
The Clinical Research Informatics Support Program (CRISP) supports Eelectronic Data Capture tools, custom databases, and access to data from the Montefiore EMR.
The BioREpository Databank (BRED) provides a solution to securely link patient specimens to clinical and pathological data, using the caTissue backbone. It provides a user-friendly engine for specimen searches, and for building clinical annotations using data from various sources.
The core facilitates research in health disparities, health outcomes, behavioral interventions, community participatory research, and health services research. expand
Spanish translation services are also available for research documents (eg, patient consent forms, recruitment materials).
This resource aims to enhance community collaboration in research, develops new models of education and training in community-oriented research, and increases public trust in research.
Patient-derived specimens are essential to research in genomics, proteomics, and biomarkers. We provide banking for biological fluid and tissue specimens as well as human DNA and RNA. expand
We provide secure archival sample storage as well as clinically-annotated specimen biobanks for defined research projects.
The core serves the human research blood and tissue banking needs of clinical and translational researchers. Samples can be banked by an individual PI or by a consortium of investigators. All samples are tracked and archived using a secure tracking database. The facility works under the best practices set out by NCI and ISBER (2006) for collection, storage, and retrieval of human biological materials for research.
Biomarker Analytic Research Core
The Biomarker Analytical Research Core (BARC) is the central laboratory for the ICTR and the Biorepository. expand
Patient samples that are handled on both campuses are routed through the BARC. In addition, we provide high-throughput analyses using mass spectrometry and other methods for a wide range of analytes.
The main analytic functions include stable isotope dilution assays, radioimmunometric assays, biomarker and substrate analyses, and sample/DNA processing.
Pilot Studies/Micro Grants
The program promotes multidisciplinary collaboration for innovative clinical / translational research, and provides seed funding for new ideas for clinical applications as well as new directions for investigator-initiated research. expand
The Pilot Studies program periodically solicits applications for funding in high-priority research areas. Competitive review of pilot projects is performed by our Scientific Advisory and Review Council.
Microgrants | RFA
Microgrant awards of up to $5,000, are provided to investigators with existing research who require additional data to generate new hypotheses. Funds may be used for any Einstein Core Laboratory or shared facility service, but may not be used to purchase equipment or for salary support.
Biostatistics and Study Design
The Resource is comprised of faculty from the Division of Biostatistics, Department of Epidemiology and Population Health with expertise in clinical trials, population-based research, and genetic analytic methods, and who provide a wide range of expertise, including study design, biostatistics analyses, and novel methodologies. expand
The resource provides statistical and epidemiologic, support, collaborates with investigators, and identifies new problems and statistical method solutions. Walk-In Biostatistics Consulting is available every Tuesday from 3-5pm in Belfer 1006E at the East Campus—where investigators can drop by and receive advice about their projects from statisticians.
