Conquering Diseases Volunteer Services
Volunteer Services is a partnership between community members, the patients being cared for by the health professionals of UMass Memorial, and the research community at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. People can learn more about research, donate blood samples to our Biorepository, enroll in our Clinical Research Volunteer Database, and participate in clinical research studies.
Clinical Research Center
Our Clinical Research Center is dedicated to efficient, reliable and high-quality study support for UMass clinical investigators.
Special Population Resource Center (more information coming soon...)
The Special Population Resource Center seeks to engage special populations in clinical and translational research with strategies that reach out to investigators and community members using tailored, culturally responsive methods. Our mission is complementary to, but distinct from that of the UMCCTS Community Engagement Core, which seeks to develop scalable models of institutional infrastructure for community-responsive clinical and translational research.
As the health care consulting division of UMass Medical School, Commonwealth Medicine uses academic research to make evidence-based recommendations. With our help, government agencies, nonprofits, and managed care organizations are able to meet today’s health care challenges — and are prepared for what’s to come.
Myers Primary Care Institute
The Meyers Primary Care Institute is committed to research across the lifespan, from childhood to advanced age. We conduct population-based research to inform policy and practice, promoting evidence-based care for the benefit of our community, and beyond.
Office of Global Health
The UMMS Office of Global Health (OGH) was founded in 2009 to enhance and expand UMMS research and training programs in global health improvement and disease prevention.
Research Cores and Facilities
The availability of robust, affordable core services accelerates the pace of research across the entire translational spectrum.
