It is staffed by experienced interdisciplinary nurses and technicians who are specially trained to carry out clinical research studies within a culture of patient safety, quality, and compliance. A large selection of procedural and laboratory services are available for investigators to conduct investigator-initiated and industry studies.

In addition to the specially trained staff and outpatient beds, the unit offers three clinical rooms, specialty exam equipment, mobile nursing services, and a metabolic chamber constructed specifically for scientific purposes.
