University of California Clinical Trial Decision Tree


Clinical Trial Decision Tree

As announced at the August 2018 Quality Research Administration Meeting (QRAM), we are pleased to present the Clinical Trial Decision Tree, a visual aid to help one assess whether industry-funded studies qualify as clinical trials under the UC definition.

Created in collaboration with Applied Innovation and with feedback from several of our colleagues from the departments, this tool was designed in furtherance of our goal to reduce administrative burden and ultimately streamline study start-up.

We hope that you find it helpful.  Please feel free to contact Heather Kubinec at or Angie Karchmer at if you have any questions.
