Center for Clinical and Research Ethics (CCRE)

The Center for Clinical and Research Ethics (CCRE) was established through a partnership between the Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS) at Washington University and the Center for Health Care Ethics at Saint Louis University, both in St. Louis, MO.

The Center for Clinical and Research Ethics (CCRE):

  • Helps ensure that all ICTS trainees receive training in clinical research ethics (CRE) and the responsible conduct of research (RCR) that exceeds the minimum standards set by NIH;
  • Conducts and supports collaborative research on clinical research ethics, research integrity, and the intersection of ethics and community engagement; and
  • Shares expertise in research ethics with individuals, policy committees, and others through consulting activities.

We actively collaborate with other Washington University offices, such as the Human Research Protections Office (HRPO), to develop and deliver research ethics education programs and presentations. Please visit the HRPO calendar page for information regarding upcoming Ethics events at Washington University.
