Research Coordinators (internal only)

Research Coordinator "buddy" 

Research Coordinators are key members of any research team and we are fortunate to have on campus research staff/coordinators with a  wealth of experience. If you are new to the Melbourne Children's campus, contact CRDO and we will put you in contact with one of the experienced staff. You can take it from there - for example, set up a regular informal catch up (perhaps over coffee) and discover how experienced coordinators undertake key procedures or processes (e.g., informed consent, data entry, maintaining a study file).

​Research Coordinator Forum

Coordinators regularly attend the Research Coordinator Forums. The forum is composed of staff at the Melbourne Children’s involved in the coordination and day to day running of clinical and public health research. The objective of the forum is to provide education and regular updates on all aspects of running clinical and public health research. The group shares resources, tools and guidance on the day to day running of these studies. All staff working in clinical or public health research are invited to attend. Register for Research Coordinator’s Forum mailing list by emaling
