As the new medical director of the Lifespan Clinical Research Center, Bharat Ramratnam, MD, talks about the center’s role in helping investigators stay focused on research.
Located in Lifespan’s extensive Coro complex, our center builds on
existing resources as well as newly created physical space to provide comprehensive support for clinical research.
Our goal is to eliminate the logistical obstacles that may prevent young researchers
from pursuing clinical trials and to provide the encouragement and additional
resources for established clinical research teams to participate in multi-center trials
and launch important research initiatives.
In addition to serving as an internal
resource for investigators within the Lifespan system, our facilities are available to
faculty across the entire Brown University research community, as well as to
investigators from other research institutions around the state. We prioritize
projects as necessary, with the goal of providing the broadest and most timely
access to the center’s services as possible.
As committed investigators ourselves, we’re excited to be able to offer this kind of
crucial support to colleagues and scientists engaged in advancing our field. We hope
to host you here at the center, and are always available to answer further questions.
