For investigators not medically credentialed at a given institution
The MRO located at the institution where you are interested in conducting research can provide medical oversight for some standard research tests and procedures such as:
- 'Minimal risk' blood draw: A collection of blood up to 200 cc drawn at one time by venipuncture from healthy, non-pregnant adults who weigh at least 110 pounds. For healthy children, the volume of blood collection by venipuncture, fingerstick, or heelstick will be determined based on the age and weight of the child.
- Routine questionnaires: Typical clinical/research instruments and ones where subject answers are unlikely to result in the need for immediate medical attention.
For institution-credentialed investigators
The MRO located at your institution can provide limited medical oversight for your study visits while you're traveling or for other coverage needs.
