Research Resource Centers

In collaboration with various external research resources, MSM faculty and student investigators can advance their research endeavors through the usage of state-of-the-art equipment, access to funding and partnerships with other scientists.

Research Centers in Minority Institutions (RCMI): MSM’s biomedical research infrastructure receives much of its support through the RCMI program, which is sponsored by the National Centers for Research Resources of the NIH. With RCMI funding, state-of-the art bio-medical research technology cores, shared use facilities, and other resources at MSM are available to our scientific investigators.


RCMI-Center for Clinical and Translational Research (R-CTR): The R-CTR supports the development of infrastructure required to conduct clinical and translational science. This infrastructure includes outpatient clinical research resources, biostatistical support, core laboratories, and facilities to support patient-oriented investigations.


Georgia Clinical & Translational Science Alliance (GaCTSA): GaCTSA is an inter-institutional magnet that concentrates basic, translational, and clinical research investigators, community clinicians, professional societies, and industry collaborators in dynamic clinical and translational research projects. Emory engaged three of its close academic partners - Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM), Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), and the University of Georgia (UGA) - to form the Georgia CTSA. This partnership, a strategic multi-institutional alliance, offers compelling, unique, and synergistic advantages to research and patients statewide.


Clinical Research Center (CRC): Founded in 1996, the CRC provides the clinical research infrastructure that is uniquely suited for the pursuit of clinical and translational research in minority and underrepresented communities. It is the first free-standing outpatient research facility in the nation to receive accreditation by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations.
