Contracts and Agreements

Any contract or agreement necessary to start your research study should be run through the Providence Research contracts office. This includes confidentiality agreements, sub-site agreements, or industry clinical trial agreements, among others. Contact Esther Wu (Manager, Clinical Research Contracts and Grants) for further information.
