Collaboration, the Carolina Way
Working together for groundbreaking results
The cornerstone of the CRA’s approach is collaboration. UNC Health reaches diverse adult and pediatric populations across metropolitan and rural communities. We coordinate multi-site clinical research through partnerships with academic, industry, and government institutions, while leveraging UNC resources such as NC TraCS, the Clinical Research Support Office, and One UNC Clinical Research, as well as leadership from national and international researchers at UNC.
Centrally located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, the CRA enjoys close proximity to organizations we collaborate with, including East Carolina University, Wake Forest University, and Duke Clinical Research Institute, as well as Research Triangle Park and its more than 300 companies.
UNC Health by the numbers
Our team’s passion is helping patients, including historically marginalized populations, and connecting them with advanced treatments.
