The NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) Clinical Trials Center (CTC), located in Evanston Hospital, was created to elevate the quality, quantity and visibility of clinical research at NorthShore.  The Center provides infrastructure and administrative support for the overall clinical research program.  Mentoring and educational opportunities are made available for physicians and staff new to the research enterprise.

Additionally, the Center assists investigators to bring studies to NorthShore with high scientific merit and impact on the practice of medicine.  Through its interaction with departmental and division leadership, physicians and staff, the CTC facilitates the development of an integrated, nationally recognized center of excellence in clinical trials research.
