The Epidemiology Clinical Research Center (ECRC) at the University of Minnesota was founded in 2000 to support the study of human subjects in a clinical research setting. The population based research conducted in the center is of the highest scientific quality and is devoted to improving public health. Groundbreaking research on cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, sleep disorders, aging, cancer, hormone replacement therapy and obesity has been conducted in the center.
The ECRC meets the diverse needs of studies within the Division of Epidemiology and Community Health and promotes collaborations with colleagues throughout the Academic Health Center at the University of Minnesota. It is managed collaboratively to accommodate a wide range of projects and responds to the ever changing research portfolio of the Division. The center has supported Principal Investigators conducting small pilot studies to large multi-center cohort studies. Some studies have involved as many as 1000 participant visits per month.
