Welcome to the Clinical Research Institute

Lorenz O. Lutherer

Welcome to the Clinical Research Institute of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center where a staff of dedicated professionals provides excellent support for an exciting diversity of clinical studies.

As an Institute, our mission is to serve all TTUHSC schools on all campuses. Our aim is to expand the clinical research being conducted in each school, foster cooperative studies involving faculty and students from more than one school, and increase the amount of translational research being done.

We are proud to provide full-service research support from personnel who have extensive knowledge of and experience in the design of clinical research studies, dealing with the regulations, delivering nursing care and actually running the studies. Further, we offer an expanding educational curriculum in support of departments and schools initiating new clinical research programs. While our emphasis is on investigator-initiated research, we also help conduct select clinical trials that offer innovative therapies to our patient population.

We look forward to a meaningful and productive relationship with all of TTUHSC as well as the communities of the West Texas region that we serve.
