Center for Clinical Research Workforce Development

FuseCR (Center for Clinical Research Workforce Development) is a collaborative designed to ignite a new synergy between UNCW and the field of clinical research. By fusing resources and knowledge from academia and industry, FuseCR is energizing the local clinical research talent with powerful career and industry enhancing services.

The general objectives of these programs and services are as follows:

  • Build Connections between Academia and Industry

  • Enhance Our Existing Workforce

  • Prepare Students for the Workplace

  • Educate the Next Generation of Talent

FuseCR was formed by UNCW faculty from the Math and Statistics Department and the School of Nursing’s Clinical Research Program, in partnership with the NC Biotechnology Center Southeastern Office and the NC Coast Clinical Research Initiative.  This project was partially funded by a grant from the Duke Energy Foundation to strengthen the workforce for the local clinical research industry.
