The Children’s Research Unit (CRU) was constructed in 2013 as a capital improvement project for the purpose of conducting primarily clinical and translational pediatric research within the Children’s Hospital of Georgia (CHOG).
The Unit is designed to accommodate researchers and research participants and serves as a first contact destination for designing research studies, assistance with IRB applications, literature reviews, and budget reviews. While the unit is primarily utilized by principal investigators, it is also available to all faculty, health sciences students, residents, fellows and students across the academic enterprise.
The Children’s Research Unit (CRU) is a collaborative initiative of Augusta University and Georgia Regents Medical Center. The CRU is located on the 5th Floor of the Children’s Hospital of Georgia (CHOG). The unit offers space and services for research participants and/or patients involved in clinical studies.
Our mission is to improve the lives of children and their loved ones through innovative research by dedicated physicians and scientists at Augusta University.
Our vision is to become an established research unit for researchers and physicians alike whose efforts will ultimately bridge the gap between research and improved pediatric healthcare.
