Clinical Research Professionals (CRP)

Upstate Medical University’s Clinical Research Professionals (CRP) group is made up of clinical research assistants, coordinators, and managers with an extensive and diverse array of skills, backgrounds, and experiences.  Our CRPs are instrumental to the successful conduct of clinical trials at UMU.  They are responsible for the professional coordination and logistical duties of conducting studies, while ensuring compliance with federal guidelines. 

The Clinical Research Professionals (CRP) group at Upstate Medical University was chartered in 2013, thanks to the hard work and dedication of two Upstate Clinical Research Coordinators, who identified a need.  The group is now being chaired by three senior research coordinators:

Joanne Chilton, Hematology/Oncology

Tina Craig, Orthopedics

Sue Hemingway, Radiology
