Doing Research

The Center for Translational Medicine at UT Southwestern Medical Center supports a wide range of consultative resources, facilities, and funding opportunities related to clinical research.

Clinical Research Unit (CRU)

The Clinical Research Unit (CRU), formerly known as the CTRC, is a multipurpose, centralized institutional resource for clinical and translational investigators on campus. The CRU provides services for all stages of a research project, from protocol development to implementation and study close-out.

Core Facilities

UT Southwestern Medical School supports numerous shared/core facilities which offer specialty services and expertise. These facilities continually add and develop new technologies and techniques to meet the evolving needs of investigators.

Consultative Resources

Consultative resources — including Spanish language validation services, biostatistics, epidemiology and research design, research volunteer recruitment, Redcap data management tools, pre-IRB review services, research ethics, and more — are available to investigators.

Funding Opportunities

Several funding opportunities made possible by CTSA funds are available to both junior and established investigators at UT Southwestern and its partnering institutions.

Please remember, if you receive support from the Center for Translational Medicine, you are required to:

  • Cite the CTSA grant in any publications resulting from that support,
  • Ensure that your publication is included in PubMed Central, and
  • Inform CTSA administration by emailing Lisa Fleming for any resulting publications or grants.
