Project: Research project

Project Details


This is a proposal to establish a General Clinical Research Center (GCRC)
at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital Medical Center. The
primary function of the GCRC will 1. To promote and enhance higher
quality and more efficient and productive and clinical investigation. 2.
Create a nucleus around which pre and postdoctoral training and educational
programs can be developed and strengthened. 3. Facilitate the cross
fertilization and interaction of basic scientists with clinical faculty.
4. Provide an ideal environment in which medical students, housestaff,
fellows, and junior faculty can stimulated to formulate their own research
ideas and career objectives. The physical facility will consist of an
eight-bed unit, six beds on SW 6 and two in the AIDS unit located on NW 3
to be used for AIDS-related research; an outpatient facility in the same
geographic area, a core laboratory, a metabolic kitchen, nurses station,
conference room, room for potential CLINFO System, a room for students,
housestaff and fellows, and offices or the program director, associate
director, and administrator. The center will be strategically located in
proximity to the main stream of clinical activities including ward medicine
and surgery, the intensive care unit, the coronary care unit, radiology,
pathology and other ancillary facilities. The center will be jointly
operated by the UM and JMH based both on mutual academic and fiscal
commitments and responsibilities. The use of the center will be open to all
disciplines in the medical center. Clinical investigation protocols include in this proposal come from Endocrine-Metabolism, Diabetes, Nephrology,
Cardiology, Hepatology, Surgery, Neonatology, Psychiatry, Hematology,
Psychology, and Oncology. Collaborative interaction with the basic sciences
is evident particularly with the Department of Microbiology and Immunology,
and is likely to grow rapidly. Some of the history and recent developments
at the UM/JMH center, relevant to this application, are briefly reviewed
with emphasis on the following points: 1. Almost unparalleled growth Of the
UM/JMH medical center both as a medical and research institution. 2.
Extraordinary increase in the quantity and quality of biomedical research
at the School. 3. Recent surge in the quality of the basic sciences and the
number of collaborative programs between basic scientists and clinical
faculty. It is our earnest conviction that the establishment of a GCRC has
become critical to further academic growth of this medical center.
