The Research Nursing Core provides investigators with skilled staff and state-of-the-art facilities to implement a clinical research study. Our research protocol nurses and research nurses are all trained for complex, detailed research observations and precise collection and storage of specimens.
Once the IRB and the Clinical Translational Research Center (CTRC) Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) have approved an investigator’s protocol, a research nurse is assigned to facilitate study implementation.
Research nurse support is also available for study participants located outside the CTRC in other areas of the hospital, via the use of “scatter” beds (i.e. the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and the psychiatric unit).
The CTRC clinic is designed with clinical research in mind: our exam, triage and phlebotomy rooms are fully equipped for data and specimen collection, as well as safety and comfort for the study participant. The clinic also houses areas for monitoring exercise and play activities, as well as rooms to accommodate special populations.

The CTRC provides a Sample Processing Laboratory to accommodate investigators’ immediate processing needs. Samples of blood, urine, stool, bile, etc. can be processed 24 hours a day and are stored according to protocol.
