Based on a hub and spoke model, the Office of Research at Inova acts as the hub to the participating product line spokes. We provide clinician-researchers with a variety of essential services to support their participation in inpatient and outpatient investigational studies.

Services include:

  • Administrative and technical support in the conduct of inpatient and outpatient research trials
  • Orientation and education for research personnel
  • Research budgeting and contract management
  • Technology transfer services
  • Grants Management Office

Our services permit clinicians to participate in investigational studies while maintaining demanding patient care and professional obligations.

Our efficient research management system increases the attractiveness of Inova Health System facilities to potential research sponsors. By serving as a single, readily accessible point of contact between research sponsors and investigators throughout the life of a study, we streamline and facilitate communication. This ensures JCAHO compliance and meets FDA Good Clinical Practice guidelines. Research sponsors appreciate the unique advantage of Inova facilities as resource venues.

To maintain Inova's reputation as a first-class location for scientific research, we work closely with each investigator to support the scientific integrity of all projects.
