Our Research mission

NJCRIs Research Department collaborates with many colleges, universities and institutions across the country. We have collaborative projects currently with Rutgers University, NYU, Univ. of Illinois, Univ. of Michigan, Southern Connecticut State, Bloomfield College, University of Puerto Rico and Columbia University.

Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) is a collaborative research approach where community members, researchers, service providers, consumers, government representatives, funders, and other stakeholders join together at each step of the research process with the aim to improve conditions in their communities.  The Research Department is always willing to come and speak to staff, clients and other agencies about our Clinical Trials and Research Projects.​  If you have a client that you feel will be a good clinical trial participant, please refer that client to a research staff member and the team will do a screening assessment to evaluate the client and see if they qualify for one of our ongoing projects.
