North Carolina Human Studies Consultation Core


The Human Studies Consultation Core provides an innovative approach focusing on consultative services to facilitate partnerships between preclinical and clinical investigators.

This core is a unique way to adapt preclinical and translational discoveries into practice. This core aims to merge training and expertise between basic scientists and clinicians for applying new science, defining appropriate target populations, and designing incisive research protocols.


The core’s consultative services will support the extension of new research findings into a tangible clinical implementation. This will provide a potentially powerful approach to relieving the translational bottleneck.

Consultants will use their expertise and knowledge of available resources, especially those included in our Clinical and Translational Science Award sites, to provide guidance on inclusion of continuous glucose monitors in, big data and real world evidence approaches using claims, recruiting underrepresented research subjects, and advanced methods and study design to promote clinical translation for NCDRC investigators.
