Clinical Research Unit (CRU)

Cleveland Clinic's Clinical Research Unit (CRU), located on the main campus, provides an optimal research setting for research participants in state-of-the-art, patient-oriented studies. Volunteer participants are at the heart of CRU's efforts to further the clinical research process and advance medical knowledge.

CRU resources consist of nursing and laboratory personnel, laboratory facilities, examination and procedure rooms, and specialized research equipment. More about the CRU

Research Program Committees (RPC)

Through a scientific peer-review process, the Research Program Committees (RPC) provide internal funding to promote the development of investigators initiating clinical or translational research projects. This competitive funding is awarded with the expectation that the project will result in abstracts, publications and/or pilot data that will enhance the ability of the investigator to compete for external funds.
