Finding research participants can be a multi-pronged and time-consuming process for researchers, involving collaborations with various groups, making presentations, putting the call out on social media, posting flyers on public bulletin boards and more.

Our center is designed to assist UD researchers with these tasks and to help the public learn about UD studies they may wish to participate in to help advance research. We recruit, screen and register research participants for studies underway across the University in a data-secure manner. Please see a sampling of our services below.

Data Management and Training

CHRC offers a secure data management solution for human subject research through REDCap. REDCap is a secure web platform for building and managing online databases and surveys (more about REDCap Consortium) 

 CHRC manages the REDCap instance for University of Delaware. Our REDCap management includes everything related to REDCap: REDCap server backup, upgrade and maintenance, REDCap user support, and also building individual REDCap projects for researchers. 

 CHRC data analysts also provide training to researchers regarding data management best practices and training on building a REDCap project and how to properly maintain REDCap projects for the lifespan of your study. Proper data management practices need to be implemented to comply with various funding agency requirements; we can help you to learn all about this to be compliant. We encourage all new REDCap users to review REDCap training materials before attempting to build any REDCap projects. 

To learn more and request a new REDCap account please submit a ticket to the CHRC REDCap support team.
