Georgia CTSA Clinical Research Centers (EUH, EUHM, Grady)

The Georgia CTSA Clinical Research Centers (GCRCs) is a service center focused on supporting and streamlining new clinical trials. The GCRC offers inpatient and outpatient research units, specialized staff, space, equipment, coordinator support, help with study initiation, budgets and more.

By delivering pay-as-you-go services through a set fee schedule, we aim to minimize the cost of conducting studies, and -ultimately- bridge the gap between science and translation in healthcare.

The GCRCs nursing staff consists of experienced, skilled nurses who demonstrate a high level of clinical expertise, critical thinking, and complex decision-making skills. They are attentive to the requirements for precision in sample collection.
