What is the CTRU?

The Clinical and Translational Research Unit (CTRU), located on the UGA Health Sciences Campus, supports investigators to conduct clinical and translational studies that advance the understanding, prevention and treatment of human disease. For students and health sciences trainees, the unit provides opportunities to learn how laboratory discoveries are translated into improved patient outcomes.

The CTRU is an initiative of the AU/UGA Medical Partnership and the UGA Office of  Research.

Check out our current list of studies to see if you may qualify, and/or sign up to receive email alerts for new studies below. Thank you!
