Clinical Trials Support Office

Clinical Researcher with Patient


Icon representing the CTSO Site ProfileThe Clinical Trials Support Office (CTSO) is the central hub for the seven trans-departmental Clinical Trials Support Units (CTSUs), providing enterprise-wide leadership, standards, policies, and a common infrastructure. At Michigan Medicine, all NIH-defined clinical trials and clinical research that has a billing calendar are required to be supported by a CTSU. 

In our role as concierge for clinical research, we act as a liaison between Principal Investigators and study teams to other partners across the U-M involved in clinical research. CTSO team members, also support OnCore, our integrated and comprehensive clinical trials management system.

Easier and more timely navigation through the administrative processes of clinical research at Michigan Medicine is our goal. If you are a faculty or study team member, CLICK HERE to start the clinical research process, or connect with us at
