Clinical Research Center (CRC) & Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS)

The CRC is an exciting catalyst for exploring the frontiers of human research. With nursing, bionutrition, biostatistics, informatics, and laboratory support cores, OSU investigators are provided with the necessary and cutting edge tools to explore the pathophysiology and treatment of disease.

Specifically, the CRC Bionutrition Core provides comprehensive diet, body composition, metabolism, and exercise-related services to investigators. This group is also dedicated to the development, preparation, and dispensation of research meals in accordance with specific research protocols.

The CRC at The Ohio State University replaces the General Clinical Research Center, which was the third oldest in the nation. The research center has been continuously funded since 1960 by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Currently they conduct over 70 active research protocols generating about 700 inpatient days and 4,000 outpatient visits per year.
