Englander Institute for Precision Medicine

Research Enrollment and Biobanking

The EIPM's Research Enrollment and Biobanking division serves as a critical link between the precision medicine research and clinical practice. This dedicated platform within our institute provides clinicians with a comprehensive guide to enrolling patients in precision medicine research studies and protocols, fostering future discoveries and clinician-driven projects.

Patient Enrollment

We encourage all eligible patients to actively participate in our research cohorts and studies. This transformative journey often commences with a physician's referral of a patient to our specialized clinical research team. Our approach extends beyond traditional referral methods, as we employ innovative patient identification techniques to identify potential candidates who may qualify for one of our many precision medicine studies. Patient recruitment and enrollment efforts include: 

  • Screening patients: Targeted enrollment using novel methods integrated in EHR

  • Real-time patient tracking: Coordinating consent, sample collection, assay submission

  • Outreach to new groups: Enrollment workflows integrated into clinics and clinical procedures 

These proactive endeavors have yielded remarkable results and have enrolled more than 5,000 patients thus far. 

Managing Trial Participants

Beyond the initial enrollment phase, our expertise extends to the management of trial participants. We employ comprehensive tracking mechanisms to monitor enrollment, ensure consenting procedures are adhered to, and conduct rigorous follow-up. This meticulous approach allows us to maintain seamless communication with participants and investigators, fostering an environment of trust and transparency.

By bridging the gap between research and clinical practice, our Research Enrollment and Biobanking division plays a crucial role in advancing healthcare innovation. Join us in our mission to redefine the future of medicine through precision and discovery.
