Adult Translational Research Unit

Adult Translational Research Unit (TRU)

The Adult Translational Research Unit (TRU) is designed to provide an optimal clinical research environment for both research participants and translational investigators. The TRU provides the infrastructural support for the conduct of clinical and translational research projects by providing access to space, resources and the expertise of research support personnel.

The TRU provides a safe, controlled environment for investigators to conduct state-of-the-art patient-oriented studies. The unit is designed to support a wide range of clinical research, from pilot studies to multi-center clinical trials.

Overview

Overview

Scientists at the Medical College of Wisconsin and at any of the CTSI partner institutions who have an approved protocol can utilize the TRU facilities.  We provide support services for a diverse array of research studies, which involve pulmonary, cardiovascular, chronic kidney, neurological (Alzheimer’s), metabolic, sickle cell, genetics and rare diseases to include a few.

The Adult TRU is located in close proximity to the main entrance of the Pavilion building of Froedtert Hospital. The unit is able to provide a wide array of basic clinical research services including nursing support, dedicated nursing time, use of exam rooms and equipment, laboratory sample preparation and consultations. Special arrangements can be made for studies requiring TRU support in a hospital setting.
