Resources for Researchers

The Greenfield Research Center

The Greenfield Research Center (GRC) was established in 1982 within the Department of Family and Community Medicine to support clinical research, clinical trials, educational research, and community-based research. We also provide education in research methodology to faculty and students.  Dr. Marianna LaNoue is the Director of the Greenfield Research Center.  Along with other research support staff, Dr. LaNoue assists in the development of grant proposals, IRB submissions, data management and analysis, and preparation of manuscripts.

The GRC hosts resources for DFCM researchers (see below).
