Lifespan Clinical Research Center

Lifespan Clinical Research Center: Our Mission

The mission of the Lifespan Clinical Research Center is to: 

  • Provide all Rhode Island residents with access to novel, cutting-edge medical treatments from birth through every phase of life.
  • Support clinical investigators at Lifespan, Brown University and the University of Rhode Island in conducting research on experimental, promising therapies and device development across medical specialties. 

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.

The Lifespan Clinical Research Center collaborates with Advance-CTR, a statewide partnership based at Brown University that provides research funding, services, and resources to clinical and translational researchers in Rhode Island.

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.”
