The Clinical Research Center (CRC) focuses on oral, dental and whole body health. The facility brings together a team of dentists, research scientists, dental hygienists and dental assistants who specialize in dental and medical research. Studies range from evaluating dental products and therapies to treatments for periodontal disease. The center, which regularly seeks volunteers for studies, conducts research for corporations and internally- and externally-funded projects. Team members offer expertise and support to clinical and basic science faculty in the area of research design, good clinical practice standards, clinical research ethics, measurement and biostatistics.
