MCRU Resources


The Michigan Clinical Research Unit (MCRU) provides the clinical staff, resources, and infrastructure necessary to conduct adult and pediatric human clinical research protocols at the University of Michigan. The main performance site is located at Michigan Medicine within the Cardiovascular Center (CVC). The Domino's Farms extension is located in northeast Ann Arbor, approximately four miles from the hospital.

Together, the locations provide access to medical assistants and lab personnel. In addition, the main location houses the metabolic kitchen, specimen core and processing lab, and an exercise physiology room.
