The Participant and Clinical Interaction Resource
The Participant and Clinical Interaction Resource, known as PCIR, helps researchers execute their clinical studies. Conducting clinical
trials is beyond the scope of most grants; however, the PCIR helps scientists design
their studies, locate research subjects, conduct their studies, collect samples, and
submit documentation. A specially certified nursing staff who are knowledgeable about
researchers' protocols carry studies to their conclusion.
The Meharry Proteomics Core
Our Proteomics Core aids investigators and trainees with high performance computation in proteomics,
as well as other "omics" type applications needing efficient analysis of large-scale
biological data sets. The ability to incorporate proteomics into translational and
clinical biomedical research is critical for the discovery of therapeutic interventions
and high fidelity biomarkers of disease and response to therapy. The Proteomics Core
provides state-of-the-art services, training, and bioinformatics-driven data analysis
to the Meharry translational research community.
