Clinical Translational Research Unit


Clinical Trial Research Unit

A state-of-the-art Clinical Translational Research Unit (CTRU) is taking shape. The unit will take an idea born in a laboratory and test it in human subjects to determine its effects – enabling new medical devices and medicines to reach the market.

Located on the ground floor of the college’s new building (Office Building 1, ME-104), the CTRU has four exam rooms, three infusion rooms and a large procedure room – all surrounding a nurses’ station with a 360-degree view of the facility.

Volunteers will be welcomed with pleasant lighting, a refreshment bar, comfy chairs, television sets and computers.

The CTRU will play a major role in helping the university fulfill its research mission while maximizing the value of ongoing clinical and basic research being carried out at FAU and its partner organizations, including The Scripps Research Institute and the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience.
