Led by Silva Arslanian, MD, the Pediatric Clinical and Translational Research Center (PCTRC) is a focal point for clinical research within Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. It is a component of the University of Pittsburgh’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), which is led by Stephen Reis, MD. The PCTRC is supported as part of the Participant and Clinical Interactions Resources (PCIR) core of the CTSI. The PCTRC was formerly known as the General Clinical Research Center, or GCRC. The name change is reflective of the change in funding to the Clinical and Translational Science Award of the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Research Resources (NCRR).
The PCTRC provides investigators with peer-reviewed funding and the resources they need to conduct clinical research under controlled circumstances, and encourages collaboration among basic and clinical scientists through studies that may translate into new or improved patient care methods. View our current areas of study.
The PCTRC research facility is located on the 8th Floor of Children’s Hospital’s Main Tower and includes inpatient and outpatient facilities and a specimen-processing laboratory. Learn more about our facilities and laboratory and how to utilize them.
