The biopharmaceutical and healthcare research industries are growing at a rapid pace, yet there is a critical shortage of clinical research professionals to manage the human subjects research activities required to move new therapies through development and to patients.
The Clinical Trials Sciences certificate prepares students who have an interest in human subjects’ research regulations, study conduct, management, data coordinating and leadership with a broad foundation of knowledge and skills needed to pursue careers in clinical research.
Jobs in clinical trials study management include: clinical research assistant, clinical research coordinators, data managers, regulatory affairs officers and more.
The Clinical Trials Sciences certificate program consists of four courses with a total of 13 undergraduate credit hours, offered completely online and is designed to be able to be completed in as little as three semesters. At the completion of the program, you’ll earn an academic certificate from The Ohio State University.
Upon completion of this certificate, students will be prepared to:
Systematically apply understanding of regulations, bioethics, design and launch of clinical trials of investigational products.
Apply data and project management to support quality improvement and monitor clinical trials activities.
This certificate is available to Ohio State students seeking a bachelor’s degree in health-related sciences (including Chemistry and Biochemistry).
This program admits students every semester. There is an application deadline for each semester.
The Addiction Medicine Lab at Talbot Hall in Ohio State’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health is hiring a full-time researcher. They seek to hire a graduate from the class of Spring 2023 or Autumn 2022 who is interested in a gap year before perusing medical school or medical research.
This paid position is a great opportunity to get experience, skills, and publications in clinical science. The Addiction Medicine Lab does many things ranging from biomedical pain and withdrawal testing, to community survey research. This position entails involvement in both, as well as overseeing undergraduate assistants and working alongside lab supervisors Dr Julie Teater & Dr O. Trent Hall.
The annual Spring Undergraduate Research Festival is a research poster and presentation forum for students to share their mentored research projects with the broader academic community. It provides an opportunity for students to gain experience communicating their research in new ways, including designing a poster and discussing the project with Festival attendees.
The festival offers poster presentations during 60-minute sessions, as well as 10-minute oral presentations which allow for more creativity in presentation design.
As with the other forums hosted by UR&CI, the Spring Festival is not specific to any discipline; students from all disciplines across the university are invited to apply, and student presenters should prepare to discuss their research with a general audience. The Spring Festival is open to all undergraduate students at Ohio State who are participating in faculty-mentored research, and students can present on projects that are still ongoing – final results are not necessary for participation.
The 2023 Spring Research Festival will take place in-person on Thursday, April 6, in the TDAI Ideation Zone in Pomerene Hall. Exact session times will be provided closer to the event date.
The 2023 Spring Festival application will be open until March 19, 2023.

The Chemistry Department at the University of North Texas is now accepting applications for itsSummer 2023 NSF-REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) Program.
This program offers interdisciplinary research experiences at the forefront of the chemical sciences. Although our faculty research groups are grounded in “traditional” areas of chemistry (analytical, inorganic, organic, physical, biochemistry), most of their research projects cross boundaries between these areas. A unique aspect of this REU program is that all projects will involve collaboration between two or more research groups, including both experimental and computational researchers.
Participants will connect with career-active researchers at major international chemical companies and tour local companies to learn how chemistry plays a role in the economy. They will also engage in hands-on learning experiences and training in scientific communication and research ethics.
Students who will not have earned their Bachelor’s degree prior to the program end date are eligible to apply.
