Pediatric Clinical Research Center (PCRC)

Overview of Services

PCRC staff work closely with investigators and study teams throughout the research study process. In addition to providing outpatient services, staff can conduct research activities in hospital areas including inpatient units and other specialty clinics. PCRC research nurses implement protocol-specific procedures and provide direct nursing care for patients enrolled in research studies. PCRC medical assistants (MAs) assist nurses in protocol-related procedures. This includes blood draws, vital signs, EKGs, measurements and specimen collection in addition to other nursing procedures. Visits are charged on a level of complexity. Studies must have an IRB Approved application and complete an on-line application.
