General Clinical Research Center - Mentored Student Grants

Grants and Contracts Details


The General Clinical Research Centers (GCRCs) are a national network of 80 centers that provide optimal settings for medical investigators to conduct safe, controlled, state-of-the-art, in-patient and out-patient studies of both children and adults. GCRCs also provide infrastructure and resources that support several career development opportunities. Investigators who have research project funding from NIH and other peer-reviewed sources may use GCRCs. Because the GCRCs support a full spectrum of patient-oriented scientific inquiry, researchers who use these centers can benefit from collaborative, multidisciplinary research opportunities. The University of Kentucky General Clinical Research Center (GCRC), a facility funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) M01-RR02602, provides an excellent environment for investigations of the cause, progression, prevention, control and cure of human disease and to provide an optimal setting for controlled clinical investigations. It strongly encourages collaboration among basic and clinical scientists - to develop, promote and maintain a national core of expert clinical investigators, to train other health professionals in clinical research, and to provide resources to advance scientific knowledge that may be translated into new or improved methods of patient care. General Clinical Research Centers: " Provide clinical research infrastructure for medical scientists who conduct patient-oriented research " Host investigators funded by the NIH, and other federal, state, and local agencies, as well as the private sector " Provide resources for investigators to perform pilot studies which may lead to other agency funding " Provide the optimal setting for controlled clinical investigations " Encourages collaboration between basic and clinical scientists " Serves as an environment for training other health professionals in clinical research " Provide resources which advance basic scientific knowledge leading to new or improved methods of patient care
