ICCTR | About Us

What is ICCTR?

The Boston Children’s Hospital Institutional Centers for Clinical and Translational Research (ICCTR, formerly the CRC) supports investigators in the design, conduct and reporting of clinical and translational studies, along with educating the diverse Boston Children's research community on clinical research best practices.

The ICCTR is made up of four distinct centers. Hover and select an area below to learn more each one.

Supporting researchers

Support is provided to investigators at all stages of protocol development and study conduct in order to ensure that research is designed in such a way to maximize benefits and minimize risks to participants in clinical research studies. Partial funding for these services is from the Harvard Catalyst, an NIH-funded Harvard Clinical and Translational Sciences Award (CTSA), which provides increased opportunities for investigator education and collaborations across the Harvard teaching hospitals.
