Introduction
The Joint Clinical Trials office is a collaborative enterprise
between Weill Cornell Medical College and NewYorkPresbyterian Hospital to foster and advance clinical research.
• Launched in January 2013 to address the need to provide
support to investigators involved in clinical research.
• Actively engaged in optimizing operating efficiencies and
offering a diverse range of support services intended to
increase the number, quality and impact of our clinical trials.
• Provides infrastructure for investigators and study teams in
the areas of contracting, finance, research integrity, study
activation, training and development, social media, and
community outreach, all under one umbrella.

• Mission
– To provide peer review of each protocol and
deliver feedback to investigators that will
improve the quality and impact of their
studies.
– The CSEC has two main functions:
• to review a study for scientific merit
• to review a study for feasibility
• Activity
– 2 General and 1 Cancer Committee
– 165 submissions received
– Average time to 1st review is 10-11 days
with 68% of studies approved at 1st review.
– Time to review expected to decrease with
launch of 3rd general committee in January
– 45% of submissions are unfunded
