CReST was created in 2017 as a CCTSI program to fill a gap in clinical research support for investigators and clinical research teams that did not have the capacity or experience to support all of their research operations. CReST started with only two members working on a handful of clinical studies within a single department.
CReST saw rapid growth and by 2021 they had expanded to a team of 15 clinical research professionals, supporting over 130 studies with more than 70 unique investigators in 30 departments across campus. The success of CReST would not have been possible without substantial initial investment and continued support from the CCTSI.
As CReST has proved to be an integral resource to clinical research across the Anschutz campus, it was decided that CReST would move from being a CCTSI resource and operate within the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research beginning in July 2021. This move allows CReST to expand and increase their presence and support across the campus as an institutional clinical research resource.
