Our Network

Great Lakes Research Network (GLRN) is a group of community-based, research sites dedicated to enhancing access to clinical trials and accelerating the pace of clinical research. We are a multispecialty research network with a focus in metabolic conditions, infectious diseases, and vaccine trials.

Based in Detroit, we started as an inner city research site that provides access to clinical trials for medically-underserved and diverse populations. Today, we have expanded beyond the Great Lakes region to include research sites in the US-Mexico border.
