The UW has a central ClinicalTrials.gov (CT.gov) service to assist PI’s and study teams with CT.gov registration, maintenance, and results reporting processes.
This service is free of charge to study teams who would like assistance.
To get started:
The UW CT.gov Service was established in 2018 with the initial goal of bringing UW CT.gov records into compliance with legal requirements and to create proactive processes for maintaining public record compliance going forward. However, UW Investigators conducting clinical trials are driven by a greater purpose of meeting an ethical obligation to trial participants and to be in service to the community at large. UW CT.gov Specialists share this commitment and approach public clinical trial records with Investigator integrity in mind.
ClinicalTrials.gov is an online clinical study registry and results database for participants, their families, health-care professionals, researchers, policy makers, and the public to access information about research studies involving human volunteers. This public resource has evolved with various stakeholder perspectives in mind.
A CT.gov Protocol Registration and Results System (PRS) user account is required to register your clinical study to ClinicalTrials.gov. The CT.gov PRS is the data entry portal for initial registration and to make subsequent updates to trial records on the public ClinicalTrials.gov site.
Meredith Rhodes has been a UW CT.gov PRS Admin since 2017 and has served in leadership on the National CT.gov Taskforce since 2020. She is driven to see UW lead in clinical trials transparency by our ethical obligation to participants and our service to the scientific community. Meredith is a student of the Earth and enjoys contemplating how our environment shapes us.
Celia Westemeier has worked as a Regulatory Specialist for the UW since 2016. She is committed to her community, volunteering with Neighbors Helping Neighbors and serving in various leadership roles at her church. Celia has a taste for fine foods and appreciates the arts and cultural experiences that Madison offers.
