Genesis Research and Grants Administration & Institutional Review Board (IRB)
National Sponsors and principal investigators will see Genesis as a "preferred site" for high quality clinical trials, allowing our patients to receive the most innovative treatments and technologies close to home.
Genesis Health System intends to provide research opportunities for the promotion of innovative and quality healthcare within our community. These include numerous clinical trials that explore new medications, treatments, and therapeutic devices that may help people dealing with a wide variety of diseases.
Our goal is to support and encourage clinicians as they seek to combine professional development and research activities with the demands of caring for their patients.
We also recognize that Genesis's diverse clinical settings make the system an especially attractive research site. We work with outside research sponsors to help them see the unique advantages of Genesis Health System facilities as research venues. We believe everyone benefits when we make it possible for professionals to develop new skills and stay abreast of emerging technologies.
