Clinical Research Resources

YCCI supports both an inpatient unit at Yale-New Haven Hospital and an outpatient unit located at 2 Church Street South, in the same building as YCCI’s Office of Research Services. The skilled nursing staff and state-of-the-art equipment of the Hospital Research Unit support moderate and high risk studies, while the easy access and attractive environment of the Outpatient Facility provide an ideal setting for minimal and low risk studies.
