Clinical Trials at UIC
UIC's Hub for Clinical Research
In addition to conducting clinical trials in the Clinical Research Center, the CCTS serves as a hub for both community members and health researchers interested in paricipating in clinical trals.
The CCTS works closely with the Office for the Protection of Research Subjects (OPRS) when supporting clinical trials on campus. OPRS provides administrative assistance for the review and approval of research protocols (experiments) involving humans and human embryonic stem cells (hES). They help ensure that regulations are adhered to for the protection and welfare of subjects, investigators, and the University.
