The Swedish Center for Research and Innovation
The Swedish Center for Research and Innovation (SCRI) supports and administers research activities throughout the six Swedish campus locations. SCRI is one of the leading clinical trial sites in the western United States, and at any given time, there are more than 600 research studies being conducted by Swedish-affiliated clinicians and other investigators. In addition to participating in major federally funded programs Swedish physicians are involved in research studies of new treatment approaches for everything from coronary-artery disease to ovarian cancer to retinopathy. To support this work, Swedish employs numerous research staff including coordinators, scientists, interviewers and research nurses. Below are a few highlights of our research program.
Through our centralized oversight mechanism we support the core research functions of Study coordination, financial oversight, risk management, federal grant administration (pre- and post-award),contract negotiation, feasibility and ethics review, clinical trial tracking and billing integration, regulatory compliance, investigator development and training.
