Conduct a Trial
The expertise and expense of conducting a clinical trial are beyond the scope of most researchers' grants. Meharry's Participant and Clinical Interactions Resources (PCIR) offer researchers the infrastructure they need for this function.
PCIR is one of multiple core facilties available to Meharry's researchers. It is a joint project of the Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS), the General Clinical Research Centers (GCRC) Program of the Division of Research Resources, National Institutes of Health, and Research Centers in Minority Institutions Program (RCMI) of the National Center for Research Resources. As a result of this important funding, Meharry Medical College, like other minority health sciences institutions, is providing the support that minority researchers have been lacking in the laboratory—and may directly benefit health disparities in the community.
