The Clinical Research Unit (CRU) at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago is a child- and family-friendly environment that offers eight outpatient private exam rooms, six dedicated inpatient beds and a consultation room. Facilities available to meet the need of investigators include touchdown space for investigators and auditors/monitors, limited investigator supply and equipment storage and refrigeration of specimens. The unit can be utilized with full nursing services or for space only.
A clinical manager oversees the CRU, which is staffed by a project manager, medical assistant and registered nurses who have been Pediatric Advanced Life Support certified. The CRU also has a fully staffed and dedicated research pharmacy and laboratory support.
The CRU is located on the 19th floor at 225 E. Chicago Ave. between Chicago Avenue and Superior Street. It offers nursing services and, outside of the CRU, research pharmacy and laboratory services. The outpatient unit is open from 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.
