CTRC Research Nursing Services

Doctor visiting a child patientWe provide nursing, lab, and administrative resources and dedicated space at Children’s Hospital Colorado to conduct clinical research. The CTRC supports both investigator-initiated studies, including multi-center NIH studies and industry-initiated protocols. All services are provided on a fee-for-service resources basis with federally and investigator-initiated funded studies receiving subsidized rates for studies in pediatric, adolescent, and neonatal populations. We can also perform simple sample collections on adults when studies involve parents or caregivers.

The CTRC conducts a broad range of research procedures, including novel procedures never performed in clinical care, such as measurement of insulin sensitivity via hyperinsulinemia-euglycemic clamps. We routinely perform OGTTs and IVGTTs, medication
administration, infusions, PK assessments, measurements of growth and anthropometrics, as well as collecting, processing and assaying biological specimens. Only IRB-approved protocols can request CTRC services.
