See what previous investigators have to say about their experience with Emory GCRCs!

The GCRC has been an invaluable asset to successfully running our research protocol. From round table discussions in the preplanning stages to the help and support of the staff on study days, our success is directly tied to the support of the GCRC. I am very grateful for the resources that the GCRC provides and look forward to working with them on other protocols in the future.

David Goldsmith, MD, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry @ Emory University

Support from GCRC is integral to clinical and translational research at Emory Midtown. We utilize the research site for specimen storage, processing and shipping, all essential to complete both the investigator initiated and industry sponsored studies that maintain the research mission of the Emory Sinus, Nasal and Allergy Center.
