The GCRC is available to all University of Maryland investigators who have a need for Center resources and who will conduct clinical research of scientific merit. Studies funded by federal sources, foundations, industry and other sources are welcome. The GCRC welcomes pilot studies that may lead to future peer-reviewed clinical research.
