The mission of the Office of Clinical Trials (OCT) is to encourage
and support investigators at Einstein and Montefiore Medical Center in
their conduct of clinical research by providing resources, expertise,
and best practices to facilitate efficient, compliant and ethical study
conduct and management.
We strive to provide exceptional support to our physicians and to our
community to foster better health outcomes for our patients and afford
them access to state-of-the -art therapies and drugs.
We seek to attract novel, innovative and transformational
therapeutics, diagnostics and devices to our medical center and its
stakeholders, and serve as an easy partner providing industry sponsors
access to our skilled investigators, our experienced study coordinators,
and our patient community.
The OCT assists the Montefiore Medical Center and the Albert Einstein
College of Medicine with managing all aspects of clinical trials of new
pharmaceuticals and medical devices, including both industry-sponsored
and investigator-initiated studies. We help prepare IRB submissions,
build and negotiate budgets, manage contracting and engage in business
development. We also serve to see that trials - once activated - get
enrolled and successfully completed, and provide financial oversight to
help administer the medical center's research billing compliance
