The proposed Charity Hospital-Tulane-Louisiana State University (LSU) GCRC will serve as a facility for patient-based applied and basic research.
The specific aims of the GCRC are: (1) to provide a well staffed facility that will allow in-hospital and outpatient care for patients who are subjects in research projects; (2) to allow these projects to be performed under controlled conditions with scientific accuracy; (3) to support a Core Laboratory which will provide assays for many of the researchers who use the facilities as a measure to increase productivity and reduce costs; (4) to improve the quality of patient care in the overall Charity Hospital- Tulane-LSU Medical Complex by applying the advances made in these clinical research endeavors to disease diagnosis and therapy; (5) to provide training in the methodology and design of good clinical research projects as a form of teaching for post-graduate research residents, interns, medical students, and fellows, nurses and other paramedical personnel in the facility. The program stresses: (1) a strong interdisciplinary effort by both medical schools and by several departments within each school; (2) a strong letter of commitment from Charity Hospital and the participating medical schools with regard to housing of the unit (Charity Hospital) plus renovation costs; and (3) quality (predominantly NIH funded or pending funded projects) by most of the leading investigators in both medical schools and at Charity Hospital. The Charity/Tulane/LSU GCRC will be predominantly an adult unit but with a small pediatrics and """"""""contagious"""""""" areas within the same facilities.
