The Office of Vice Chancellor for Research announces new director

Cat Sutherland

On April 15th, Catherine (Cat) Sutherland moved into the role of Clinical Research Administration (CRAO) Director. As the Director of CRAO, Cat will oversee the utilization of electronic data capture, OnCore, eReg, and how the systems work together in coordination with the Zendesk helpdesk system and the Human Subject Research Portal. She will also work to ensure that these systems meet the business needs for the approval of clinical research and continued compliance during the lifespan of clinical research studies. 

Prior to taking on this new role, Cat was COMIRB’s Assistant Director, a position which she held since 2017. Before coming to CU Anschutz, she lived in Massachusetts and was an Associate Chair for the Partners Healthcare IRB. Cat is very enthusiastic about her love of human subjects’ protections and regulations.

Cat is very excited to continue working with the other departments within the Office of Vice Chancellor for Research, as well as study teams, campus partners, and affiliate institutions. Her door (and Teams Chat) is always open! Feel free to drop her a note to talk about CRAO or any of her other interests: music; basketball; the New England Patriots; and Taylor Swift. 

Please join us in congratulating Cat on this new role!
