TTUHSC students walking through Lubbock campus courtyard.

Welcome to the Clinical Research Institute (CRI). As an Institute within TTUHSC, we exist to support every faculty and trainee within all the schools of the HSC.  Our subject of support is the development and completion of sound clinical research, competitive within the peer review arena.

We exist to provide the day-to-day activity of bedside research allowing busy clinicians to also be successful clinical scientists.

The specifics of our support include educating faculty and trainees in the nuances of clinical research, support successful IRB approval, participate in data collection and subject entry into prospective studies, and finally statistical assessment of study data and assistance in manuscript development.

Access to the CRI support is simple by accessing the website and clicking on the work order link shown on our homepage.  Utilizing the CRI is completely free of charge for investigator-initiated research.  Please allow us the pleasure of helping you today turn every bedside encounter with the sick patient into a successful clinical research project that has the potential of improving healthcare tomorrow.
