Erlanger Institute for Clinical Research

Our mission is to promote, support, and encourage clinical research!

In keeping with Erlanger’s core mission and vision, the Erlanger Institute for Clinical Research seeks to provide excellent medical care and quality service to our patients while also striving to improve healthcare through clinical research. Erlanger seeks to unite two objectives which lie at the heart of every research endeavor – providing our patients access to innovative treatments, while simultaneously supporting our research associates as they conduct clinic trials that pioneer new standards in healthcare.

The Erlanger Institute for Clinical Research (EICR) was created in 2013 to provide a platform of clinical research-related services for EHS-affiliated clinicians who take interest in research, or have the unique opportunity to address their patient’s needs with novel solutions & approaches, utilizing evolving new modalities and treatment through practical clinical research.

EICR currently works with an ever-expanding variety of international, national, regional, and local clinical trial sponsors in efforts to undertake these novel, cutting-edge opportunities and establish more advancements within healthcare.

Among the services that we provide are:

  • Research coordinator availability.
  • Site budget analysis/negotiation solutions.
  • Assistance with start-up documents and IRB interactions.
  • Other arising needs for funded clinical research efforts.
