Proven Recruitment Model:
Seattle Women’s has a committed database of healthy, reliable volunteers actively maintained and developed by our recruitment team. We have the capacity to readily enroll the required number of participants for each FDA required ovulation study. Knowledgeable recruitment staff provide thorough screening in order to identify dependable qualified participants and minimize screen fail rates. We maintain a database of over 500 healthy women between the ages of 18 and 35 who are candidates for ovulation studies.
Our program is designed to meet the unique logistical challenges that ovulation studies present. Seattle Women’s offers seven day/week ultrasound and venipuncture facilities with extended hours, including holiday hours. Our ultrasounds are performed by board certified Gynecologists (PI’s) and ultrasonographers with extensive experience in imaging of the female reproductive system. Seattle Women’s employs a team oriented approach, with highly experienced Clinical Research Coordinators supported by trained research assistants. Our flexible staffing model allows our Clinical Research Coordinators to devote the time that is required for intensive studies.
Our Principal Investigator, Dr. Robin Kroll, is on site and personally supervises all aspects of every research study. She is responsible for review and approval of all contracts and budgets, which allows for rapid study start-up. Our experienced physicians (Sub-Investigators) meet with each study participant on a regular basis, creating a comfortable and informed relationship which leads to high retention and dependable volunteers.
