Responses to COVID-19

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve in the greater Washington DC area, we are following the directives of our respective universities and institutions. As a result, most GHUCCTS physical offices are closed and we have shifted to virtual support for our research faculty, staff and trainees. Our Clinical Research Units at Georgetown University Hospital and Howard University Hospital remain open for ongoing studies that require scheduled visits for already enrolled patients, but not for new enrollments or new protocols at this time.
