    High-Quality, Patient-Oriented Research

    The Clinical Translational Research Center (CTRC) at Cincinnati Children’s provides resources that enable investigators to perform high-quality, patient-oriented research at various venues across the Academic Health Center (AHC) and the community.

    We are one of 61 Clinical and Translational Science Awards consortium members  throughout the United States funded by the National Institutes of Health to conduct clinical research. Our services build off the work of the General Clinical Research Center (GCRC), which has provided care to more than 25,000 infants, children, adolescents and adults since 1963.

    The Clinical Translational Research Center provides resources for clinical investigation, including biochemical assays, bone densitometry, bionutrition services, behavioral measures and vascular testing. We support the growth of clinical translational research and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) research skills of investigators, and can provide access to additional resources through the Center for Clinical and Translational Science and Training (CCTST).

    Multidisciplinary groups of pediatric, surgical, obstetrical and internal medicine subspecialists have drawn on these resources to conduct research studies in a diverse range of interest areas:

    • Bone mineral accretion in infants, children and adults
    • Diabetes mellitus in children and adults
    • Chronic cholestatic liver disease and its complications
    • Growth in chronic disease
    • Growth in specific disorders, such as growth hormone resistance
    • Obesity and body composition changes with age
    • Gaucher disease
    • Isoflavones
    • Cystic fibrosis
    • Behavioral science studies
