Mission and Services
The General Clinical Research Center (GCRC) is the cornerstone for clinical research within the University of Maryland. The GCRC supports the full spectrum of patient-oriented research.
The GCRC is available to all University of Maryland investigators who have a need for Center resources and who will conduct clinical research of scientific merit. Studies funded by federal sources, foundations, industry and other sources are welcome. The GCRC welcomes pilot studies that may lead to future peer-reviewed clinical research.
The GCRC can provide investigators with the resources they need to conduct clinical research, including nursing support and the facilities for inpatient and outpatient data collection and patient care, as well as a state-of-the-art DEXA Facility.
