Facility Details

Our GCRC is one of approximately 80 centers nationwide that embody the GCRC Program which was established in 1960 and is funded by the National Institutes of Health through The National Center for Research Resources. The objective of the GCRC Program is to provide scientists the infrastructure necessary for the efficient and productive conduct of high quality clinical research. GCRCs strive to provide a conducive environment for studies of normal and abnormal body function and for investigations of the cause, progression, prevention, control, and cure of human disease. Use of the Centers for interdisciplinary, collaborative research and training in medical research is encouraged. GCRCs are available to investigators from all medical specialties and from the basic sciences. Investigators who receive their primary research funding from components of the NIH and investigators gathering pilot data for submission of grants to the NIH are the principal users of GCRCs. However, GCRCs may host investigations funded by other federal, state and local agencies as well as by the private sector.
