The Clinical Research Center (CRC) at Meharry Medical College is a joint project of the Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS), the General Clinical Research Centers (GCRC) Program of the Division of Research Resources, National Institutes of Health, and Research Centers in Minority Institutions Program (RCMI) of the National Center for Research Resources. The purpose of the CRC is to provide the resources necessary to facilitate clinical research in a minority academic setting by expanding existing programs, nurturing new investigators, and encouraging full utilization of its services. Our mission is to:
1) Promote the advancement of clinical research and improve the health and welfare of disadvantaged and minority populations through participation in clinical studies.
2) Promote an environment that encourages, stimulates, nurtures, and attracts clinical research by providing leadership and support for conducting clinical research.
