Who We Are

Supporting Clinical Research

The Clinical & Translational Research Unit is a centralized resource that supports Ohio University faculty, staff and students who are conducting clinical research with human subjects.

The Heritage College's research activities are helping to forge new ties with the general public, the scientific community, health care professionals and the biomedical and pharmaceutical industries.

Our vision is to be nationally recognized as one of the leading clinical trial facilities associated with a medical school.

We operate under the guiding principles of respect for all people, unwavering adherence to the highest ethical standards and a deep sense of interdisciplinary collaboration to further the advancement of health care.
