A centralized location for resources and expertise to support investigators and research staff to promote efficient, innovative, and compliant clinical trails.

The Clinical Research Center (CRC) at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center opened in 2017 and comprises a 4,000 square feet facility designed to support investigators and their research staff in the conduct of human studies in accordance with Federal regulations. The CRC enables researchers to provide new treatments more efficiently and quickly to patients by supporting new methods and approaches to clinical and translational research and assembles interdisciplinary teams to cover the complete spectrum of medical research. The CRC includes exam rooms, consult rooms, a phlebotomy area for blood draw, specimen processing and storage, secure file storage room, a reception area staffed with a receptionist, as well as offices for study coordinators and administrative work areas. The CRC is led by a Manager and a Clinical Research Physician, both of whom have a strong background in leading and coordinating clinical research studies. They provide guidance and mentoring to investigators and coordinators
