Clinical Research Unit Takes Shape
By Eddy Ball
The factory-built modular units that will make up the new Clinical Research Center arrived right on schedule in early December, and workers started placing the units and connecting them together to create a structure resembling the artist's rendition posted on the NIEHS web site.
The former parking lot adjacent to F Module sat idle for months before a flurry of site preparation activity began in earnest earlier in the fall. Construction should not take long, but the management and staffing of the facility are different matters, as the Office of the Scientific Director recruits physicians to staff the unit and works with the Institutional Review Board to approve study proposals.
