The Clinical Research Center (CRC) is committed to providing UIC health investigators, trainees, and support staff a research environment and broad range of services that are conducive to the conduct of high quality, timely and efficient clinical and translational research. The CRC strives to facilitate clinical-translational research in a predictable and reproducible fashion.

The CRC delivers expertise and resources as required for the successful completion of research studies with an emphasis on:

  1. meeting the needs of the investigator
  2. providing a safe, high quality and enjoyable experience for our subjects, and
  3. maintaining the highest level of ongoing education for our staff

The CRC provides a comfortable, safe and effective environment to conduct research involving human subjects. This is achieved by providing the necessary environment, equipment, and personnel to optimize research goals. Investigators may utilize the personnel and facilities at the Clinical Research Center or request research support to occur beyond the walls of the CRC.

The expertise and resources offered by the CRC can help investigators who lack the research capabilities necessary for a particular protocol. We have- or can obtain- the physical resources needed to bring specialized studies to fruition. The CRC also emphasizes the safe and ethical conduct of clinical research, while at the same time fostering the training of clinical translational scientists throughout their educational or professional career.
