CECR provides technical assistance to support CUMC researchers and community stakeholders in carrying out community-engaged research. Technical assistance includes facilitation of introductions between academic and community stakeholders for possible research partnerships, assistance with potential sources for participant recruitment, and health literacy assessments of research material (e.g., consent forms, educational materials, and study flyers).

For more information on any CECR service or program contact Alejandra N. Aguirre, Senior Program Manager.

If you have a CUMC UNI, you may submit a consultation or service request using our online system.

Participant Recruitment
CECR assists with the identification of sources for potential research participants. Resources such as ResearchMatch,the Data Warehouse, the Clinical Trials Office’s RecruitMe, and CCPH’s own research registry are available to CUMC researchers.  We also post flyers and advertise research studies at CCPH.

CECR has the following advertising options available for event promotion and research recruitment:
  • Digital Signage
  • Email Newsletter
  • Ad hoc email to community residents

Funding for the Irving Institute, which supports CECR and CCPH, depends upon continued demonstration that outstanding research is being conducted and published using CECR services and facilities. We ask that you cite the grant on any publications related to your protocols that used CECR services and/or facilities.
