DEPARTMENT OF NEUROLOGY
In honor of Herbert and Marion Sandler’s extraordinary commitment to neurological disease research at UCSF, our new neurosciences building at Mission Bay has been named the Sandler Neurosciences Center. This 237,000 square foot facility has laboratories headed by principal investigators from the UCSF Department of Neurology, the Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases (IND) and the Center for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN). The Sandler Neurosciences Center, along with nearby Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Hall, makes Mission Bay one of the largest neuroscience complexes in the world. The strength and depth of UCSF neuroscience can be seen in the diverse areas of research captured by our faculty in the Neuroscience Graduate Program.
The UCSF Advanced Imaging in MS (AIMS) Group, under the direction of Roland Henry, PhD, in the Department of Neurology, performs MR imaging analyses and clinical research with patients who have a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and other neurological disorders. The team includes neurologists, neuro-radiologists, Bioengineering graduate student researchers, clinical research nurses, research coordinators, imaging specialists and administrative staff.
The Clinical Research Analyst is responsible for a lead role in managing the MRI portion of the various externally sponsored clinical trials, as well as investigator-initiated studies. The Clinical Research Analyst will assist the Principal Investigator (Roland Henry, PhD) with administration of these studies, including collection and organization of study data; development and maintenance of computerized spreadsheets and/or databases; interfacing with the clinical research coordinators of the various clinical trials; and the coordination of complex research patient scheduling.
The Clinical Research Analyst will also perform related duties on other clinical research projects, as assigned, including execute imaging analyses of simple to medium complexity under the supervision of the PI and the study coordinator; evaluate and interpret validity of data as needed; and maintain accurate and detailed visit and imaging logs of results, procedures, etc. The individual will support activities designed to ensure that clinical studies are carried out successfully and in accordance with Good Clinical Practices, Federal/State and UCSF and affiliated sites'regulations.
