Update on CTSA and OCR
(Originally sent April 4, 2008)
As promised, I am writing to provide further information on our new approach – and new leadership for the Clinical and Translational Science Award, and the Office of Clinical Research.
First, I’m pleased to announce that Betsy Seaquist has agreed to serve as interim director of the Office of Clinical Research effective next Monday, April 7. Dr. Seaquist and I will work closely to review current programs and services to ensure we are on track to become integrated with the CTSA effort. As many of you know, Dr. Seaquist has served the University for nearly 20 years, and has served as the program director for the GCRC. Her experience and knowledge will serve us well.
