Welcome to the Clinical Research Center (CRC)
Welcome to the University of Rochester's Clinical Research Center (CRC). We are located in unit G-5035 on the ground floor of the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) at 601 Elmwood Avenue, Rochester, New York. This specialized unit is funded by CTSA Grant No. UL1 TR002001 from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences within the National Institutes of Health, institutional funds from the School of Medicine and Dentistry, and program fees paid by research study budgets. The CRC is a center that provides an optimal setting for researchers to conduct safe, controlled, inpatient and outpatient studies of both children and adults. Since 1960, our CRC has been funded to provide the necessary infrastructure for investigators to conduct research studies. Led by the Program Director, Giovanni Schifitto, MD, MS, and CTSA Principal Investigators Nancy M. Bennett, MD, and Martin S. Zand, MD, PhD, the CRC facilities provide the environment and resources for medical research.
The CRC’s resources include highly trained research personnel in Nursing and Nutrition Research. The CRC team helps investigators facilitate the day-to-day research process and assists the research subjects in a supportive and efficient environment.
