The Department of Family Medicine at the University of Virginia’s (UVA) School of Medicine is seeking applicants for a Clinical Research Coordinator (Various Levels) or Non-licensed to participate in clinical research studies. This position works closely with Principal Investigators and other research team members who conduct research in several different areas including: SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome), refugee health care, behavioral health, obesity medicine, population health, social determinants of health, and cancer research projects. The Clinical Research Coordinators are tasked with consenting subjects, assisting in writing protocols, submitting IRB applications, collecting data, maintaining trial documents, and ensuring compliance with regulatory and protocol guidelines.

The Clinical Research Coordinator will assist with multiple currently funded studies and other studies that are under development and may be funded in the future. The roles include assisting with focus groups or qualitative interviews including coding, project management, IRB submission, moderating Facebook groups (safe sleep and breastfeeding interventions); assisting with data collection, analysis and dissemination of results; assisting with literature reviews, attending team meetings and helping to schedule meetings.

Some current studies include:

“ Support via Online Social Networks to Promote safe Infant Care Practices Toward Reducing Racial Disparities in Infant Mortality (SUPERSONIC) .” The overall goal of the study is to test, through a 4- armed pragmatic randomized controlled trial, an intervention strategy, grounded in health behavior theory, which uses online social networks to disseminate evidence-based information in an attempt to change social norms regarding infant sleep and breastfeeding and reduce Black/White disparities in adherence to these practices.

“ Using Integrative Omics as Biomarkers and Diagnostic Tools for SIDS .” The goal of this proposal is to comprehensively evaluate genetic and epigenetic determinates of SIDS and together with metabolomic profiles, identify novel clinical diagnostic tools to enable molecular autopsies, and ultimately, biomarkers to proactively identify and intervene in infants at greater risk of death from SIDS.

“ Novel Remote Monitoring and Intervention to Reduce Obesity in Patients at High Risk of Pancreatic Cancer ”. Obesity is one of the few modifiable risk factors for pancreatic cancer, linked with a 50-60% increased risk. There are currently no programs that have a dedicated strategy to assist patient with weight loss and reduce obesity. In this pilot program, we designed a 12-month weight management program in which 90 patients with a BMI of 30 or higher and Type 2 Diabetes will have their weight remotely monitored and educated on weight loss strategies throughout the study period. We hope to demonstrate feasibility of this type of telemedicine program in assisting patients lose weight and improve their chronic conditions and risk factors.

“Risk assessment platform for opioid misuse.” The aim of this project is to refine a tool for assessment for opioid misuse risk, to reap the benefits of additional behavioral assessment, streamlined processes, and improved health outcomes associated with those processes.

“ Social Media and Risk Reduction Teaching-Enhanced Reach (SMARTER) .” This study applys methods and lessons learned to a new 4-arm RCT to include 2,000 mothers recruited during pregnancy in Virginia and Massachusetts to receive a combination of safe sleep and breastfeeding mobile health interventions prenatally and postnatally. The primary aim is to assess the effectiveness of these interventions in promoting safe infant sleep practices and breastfeeding.
