Welcome to the Clinical Research Institute
Welcome to the Clinical Research Institute of Texas Tech University Health Sciences
Center where a staff of dedicated professionals provide excellent support for an exciting
diversity of clinical studies.
As an Institute, our mission is to serve all TTUHSC schools on all campuses. In order
to create a well-organized program, initial activity will be in Lubbock with expansion
to other campuses occurring soon. 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
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.
