Clinical research coordinators are responsible for overseeing the daily activities of the staff conducting the research. They work with principal investigators to determine if study is viable and figure out a budget. They also review the protocol of the research, ensure test subjects are familiar with that protocol, and help conduct research.
Generally, clinical research coordinators work in a lab setting with the principal investigator and the lab staff. They also interact with research subjects, who must offer informed consent to be in a study. The clinical research coordinator’s schedule depends on the studies being conducted. For example, if the study looks at exercise performance in the morning versus in the evening, then the clinical research coordinator would be required at the lab at corresponding times with the subjects.
Clinical research coordinators typically must have a master's degree in their chosen field and relevant experience. They typically also need a certification from either the Association of Clinical Research Professionals or the Society of Clinical Research Associates. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
