Integrating Clinical and Basic Science Research for Improved Quality of Life
The primary objective of the University of California, Berkeley Clinical Research Center (UCB-CRC; established April 2004) is to work closely with industry, foundations, and government to design and evaluate innovations in patient care.
To accomplish this goal, the UCB-CRC has created an interdisciplinary initiative that combines clinical research, basic science, epidemiology, and patient care. We offer the expertise of clinicians and faculty from the UC Berkeley departments of Optometry, Vision Science, Public Health, Bioengineering, Chemistry, Psychology, Neuroscience, Molecular & Cellular Biology, Genetics, and Physics.
What We Offer
We believe that the UCB-CRC offers an exceptional opportunity to work with renowned clinicians and scientists at the leading public research institution in the United States.
If you are interested in collaborating with the UCB-CRC on a research project or have any other inquiries regarding our research projects, please contact our director, Dr Meng C. Lin.
We welcome proposals from the private, academic, and government sectors for research collaboration.
- Patient-based research located at a center serving a diverse multicultural population comprising ~ 60,000 annual patient visits.
- Interdisciplinary research and clinical teams investigating and developing strategies for disease diagnosis and prevention, and treatments of visual and health anomalies.
- Partnerships with private and public research institutions to determine the efficacy, feasibility, and safety of health-care products related to contact lenses, pharmaceuticals, vision therapy and rehabilitation, and computer vision.
- Facilitation of patient-based research adhering to the highest clinical and ethical standards.
