The Clinical Research Center operates within the Department of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. It is part of the UVA Health Sciences Center, which is a tertiary care facility serving residents of Central, North and Southwest Virginia.

Located in the Outpatient Psychiatric Services Clinic, the Center has dedicated office space, labs, examination rooms and reception and secretarial support. Comparable space and support for Center-directed clinical trials are also available at three off-ground regional sites.

The Center has professional medical and nursing staff trained to perform Phase II, III and IV clinical research on drugs for treatment of acute and chronic psychiatric and other disorders.

The Center provides internal site management and quality control for each study in accordance with the FDA’s GCPs and ICH guidelines and is responsive to the individual sponsor’s needs. Clinical research expertise in methodological design and data analysis is also available.
