Clinical Research Coordinator Services

The Stanford Maternal and Child Health Research (MCHRI) provides a formal infrastructure for pediatrics research that enables, facilitates, and supports the clinical and translational research efforts of children's services at Stanford and invests in robust career development and mentoring for trainees, young investigators, and mid-level faculty to create a clear pathway that ensures their career advancement and success.

Our Child Health Core Services

The Clinical Research Core consists of experienced and pediatric-focused clinical research coordinators. Services available range from full support for clinical research studies and trials (pre-award to closeout) to selected “a la carte” support (e.g., IRB preparation only, etc.).

Consultation services are provided at no charge. We can provide clinical reserach coordinator (CRC) effort estimates for the purpose of budgeting for grant submissions and/or clinical research projects.

Please contact May Zepeda at or by phone at 650-724-0177.

From our Members

Pediatrics | Medical Genetics

"I cannot overstate the importance of the research coordinators and expertise of the MCHRI group which has allowed the trial to proceed and allow me to focus on the science and recruitment of subjects. I am extremely grateful for the services provided."

David A. Stevenson, MD, FACMG
Pediatrics (Medical Genetics)

Pediatrics | Gastroenterology

"MCHRI has supported us to hire two exceptional CRCs. In addition to the wonderful expertise they offer divisions in the recruitment and hiring process, they also offer invaluable guidance to CRCs. They offer a CRC community outside of the division and expertise and resources on everything CRC related."

Anava Adams Wren, PhD
