For Researchers

From start to finish, we make it easier for researchers to conduct clinical studies

The CTRU provides support for all stages of clinical research, from initial conception to final reporting. Investigators are strongly encouraged to involve the CTRU as early as possible when planning their research.

The CTRU staff is experienced with study participants of all ages and has expertise in a variety of therapeutic areas, including Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, aging (sarcopenia and mobility disability) and chronic back pain. The CTRU supports NIH-funded trials, pharmaceutical-sponsored trials (Phase I-IV) and investigator-initiated trials. The staff are well-versed in FDA regulatory guidelines and good clinical practice. Services provided by the CTRU are available to faculty of the Heritage College, as well as other Ohio University faculty.
