Our Research Support is the only self-sufficient group at the University of Louisville with the capacity to conduct independent, large-scale population-based studies. Its revolutionary approach, provides interdisciplinary results and inter-professional learning for research endeavors across the University. At CERID, we structure our research into three main areas: Epidemiological Studies, Clinical Studies, and Laboratory Studies.


Considered a cornerstone methodology of public health research, our epidemiological studies benefit from our holistic research capabilities. We are able to conduct and publish research effectively on a large scale.


Led by our Principle Investigator Forest Arnold, clinical studies are approached through observation or trial. Our clinical studies require the combined efforts of community-based interventions and quality care from our team of investigators.


Using our in-house, CLIA Certified research laboratory, we measure and execute procedures, treatment, and effects of a study on a given population.
