Sparrow Clinical Research Institute

Sparrow Health System joined forces with the Thoracic & Cardiovascular Healthcare Foundation (TCHF) in 2012 to create the Sparrow Clinical Research Institute (SCRI).TCHF, founded in June 1992 as a non-profit medical research foundation, did clinical research in cardiology, electrophysiology and cardiovascular surgery. The formation of SCRI allowed us to expand our research program to include more investigators and new medical specialties. We have conducted over 315 clinical trials and are actively recruiting new ventures.

We are also members of the Association of Clinical Research Professionals, certified in transportation of dangerous materials and have completed NIH research ethics training. Our clinical research coordinators are registered nurses or certified in clinical research and we have regulatory staff and research assistants that work closely with our coordinator staff.
