CRUs and OOs

Trent Exterior

Clinical Research Units (CRUs) and Oversight Organizations (OOs) are the operating business units responsible for the integrity, financial accountability, regulatory compliance, quality, and academic productivity of clinical research studies taking place at Duke Health.

Study selection decisions are made within the CRUs and OOs, as well as the coordination and allocation of resources, and the flow of funds associated with individual studies.

Each CRU/OO consists of leadership comprised of one or more of the following:

  • Faculty Advisory Board
  • Director
  • Financial Practice Manager
  • Research Practice Manager

How do I know whether to select a CRU or an OO?
