Clinical Services Core

Accelerating Discoveries Toward Better Health

The CCTS Clinical Services Core is a dedicated facility for patient-oriented research located on the fifth floor of the University of Utah Hospital. Our reputation for excellence in clinical research began here as the University of Utah General Clinical Research Center or GCRC, an academic home for “first in human” research performance that has been generously supported by the National Institutes of Health and the University of Utah since 1964.

The CSC provides physical space and expert nursing support for both inpatient and ambulatory human subject research.

Nursing & Other Research Performance Services

Research nurses with specialized training facilitate research protocols that range from simple outpatient encounters to intensive studies requiring invasive procedures and multiple day hospital admission.

  • Distance nursing support to studies carried out elsewhere in the University Hospital and Primary Children's Hospital.
  • Master's trained research nutritionist.

Let us show you how we are able to consistently execute exceptional patient-oriented research, ensure research integrity, and provide quality care and patient safety for our participants.
