For Research ParticipantsWelcome to the CTSC Units

The Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) is located at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Studies that involve in-person visits often take place in one of the four CTSC clinics. Each of our clinics is devoted to a specific type of study visit:

  • The Adult Inpatient Unit, located in the Payson 2 Pavilion, consists of six rooms with nine beds, nursing station/ nurse manager’s office, metabolic kitchen.
  • The Adult Outpatient Unit, F260-F263, consists of six examination rooms, study room for continuous infusion studies, spacious reception area.
  • The Pediatric Inpatient Unit, Greenberg 6 North, consists of six rooms with eight beds and an inpatient procedure/ treatment room.
  • The Pediatric Outpatient Unit, HT3, consists of two examination rooms and treatment room and reception area.

The most common study visit is an outpatient visit. This visit occurs within the same day, and does not require an overnight stay. Inpatient study visits, however, involve overnight stays at the hospital. These stays vary in length, so please check with the study contact for specific information.

For participants under the age of 18, the CTSC has specialized pediatric clinics, which are equipped to meet the needs of this particular group of participants. Staffed with trained professionals, the pediatric clinics offer a comfortable, family-friendly environment for participants and their families.
