Research Coordinator - req# 7357
|Working Title||Research Coordinator|
The Young laboratory is investigating a fast, ultrasensitive system for diagnosis of bloodstream infections and is in need of an organized, tactful, and motivated research coordinator to function as a liaison between medical staff, patient and family members, and other study staff. The current standard for detecting bloodstream infections is a blood culture test. Most bacteria can be detected in 2 - 3 days, but some types can take longer utilizing this system. The study sponsor, DNA Electronics, Inc. is developing a highly sensitive system that can give final organism identification, antibiotic susceptibilities, and resistance in 3 hours. Sepsis is life-threatening and early antibiotic therapy is critical to successful recovery. The goal of the research study is to test the validity of DNA Electronics, Inc.’s system and compare it to the current standard in hopes of proving the importance and efficiency of a quicker system.
DNA Electronics (Study Sponsor) would like the Research Coordinator to be able to work flexible hours in combination with study staff to cover from 8:00am to 8:00pm Monday thru Friday.
