Human Clinical Research Facility Grand Opening

Join us for the grand opening for the Human Clinical Research Facility (HCRF), a 23,000 square foot biomedical research facility that was developed to provide a centralized research facility for clinical researchers to conduct human clinical research trials at Texas A&M University. The HCRF houses two primary research groups from the Department of Health & Kinesiology in the College of Education and Human Development; the Exercise and Sport Nutrition Laboratory (ESNL) and the Center for Translational Research in Aging and Longevity (CTRAL). The ESNL was developed in 1997 under the direction of Richard B. Kreider, PhD and is dedicated to study the role of exercise and nutrition on health, disease, rehabilitation and performance. The CTRAL was developed in 2006 under the direction of Nicolaas E Deutz, MD, PhD and Marielle P Engelen, PhD and is dedicated to the study of translational research on nutrition, exercise, and metabolism in relation to aging and the common diseases of our aging population.
