CCTS/CRSO Membership

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the University of Kentucky's Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) and the UK Clinical Research Support Office (CRSO) This process will take less than one minute. If you had previously completed a membership survey we ask that complete the survey again to re-attest as our membership model has been refined. You will then have access to CCTS/CRSO services as you did in the past.

Who can join the CCTS/CRSO and what is the cost?

There is no cost to become a member and membership in the CCTS/CRSO is open to:

  • faculty
  • staff
  • students
  • trainees
  • affiliated organizations and partners

How do I register?

Become a member in under 60 seconds. The Principal Investigator (PI) requesting a service MUST become a member prior to requesting a service. A LinkBlue ID is required to become a member. Enter your link blue at the right side of this page and complete the very short membership form. The LinkBlue ID that is entered will prepopulate information for that ID. Upon completion you will be given the opportunity to request services. If you are a UK Faculty, Staff, or Student you received your ID when arriving at UK (e.g. AD/abc123 or MC/abc123 – the abc123 is your actual linkblue id).

If you are external to UK and do not have a LinkBlue ID, you can sign up for one by clicking here. Your request will be processed within 4 working days. You will receive an email to activate your account at the email address provided in the request. Please check your junk mail. Once activated, a CCTS membership request can be made.

Please click the button to the right to become a member. Please remember the LinkBlue ID that is used will prepopulate with that information. The PI should enter their own membership.
