Research Concierge @ the Library is a joint service provided by iTHRIV, the SOM CTO, and the Health Sciences Library.
The Integrated Translational Health Research Institute of Virginia (iTHRIV) serves as the “front door” for researchers and study teams at the University of Virginia to provide education and services to facilitate clinical and translational research, including data modeling, basic science, animal, clinical, and outcomes research. The SOM Clinical Trials Office (CTO) provides support services for the planning, implementation and management of clinical research studies. Together THRIV and the CTO are offering Research Concierge Services at the Health Sciences Library.
Research Concierge Services are available to connect UVa investigators with clinical translational research services across Grounds. They can also help research teams understand and utilize UVa systems that support research operations.
Research Concierge Services consults are available free of charge to all students, staff, and researchers across the University of Virginia. They are available to assist with questions such as:
Researchers, students and staff can email questions to iTHRIV Research Concierge Services at ResearchConcierge@hscmail.mcc.virginia.edu (all translational research questions) or the SOM CTO at email@example.com (clinical research questions).
