Clinical Research Center

The Clinical Research Center (CRC) provides centralized clinical research infrastructure for investigators in multiple disciplines.  The CRC research unit serves pediatric and adult patient-oriented research, including first-in-human studies, mechanistic and integrative physiology, clinical trials, and behavioral studies.  A mobile team of clinical research staff supports investigators with studies conducted at point-of-care sites. The new CRC facility in the Van Etten building features 6 patient exam rooms; a procedure suite for intensive protocols which require multiple blood drawings and close patient observation, staff offices, and a full kitchen where the fasting patients can eat. The facility has patient care staff and laboratory specimen handling personnel 5 days a week. To request usage of the CRC, click hereor speak with Minka Chikolareva directly.
