Our main unit is located in G-5035 and our Clinical Research Infusion Center is located in G-8169 on the ground floor of the University of Rochester Medical Center at 601 Elmwood Avenue, Rochester, NY. This specialized unit of the UR CTSI provides an optimal setting for researchers to conduct safe, controlled, inpatient and outpatient studies of both children and adults.
