CCRC Facility & Directions

About the COVID-19 Clinical Research Center

The COVID-19 Clinical Research Center (CCRC) is a stand-alone building on the Fred Hutch South Lake campus. It is designed to support active COVID-19 research participants outside a hospital setting that prioritizes participant and staff safety. It’s important to remember that not all participants will have SARS-Cov-2; some will be healthy volunteers and others will have recovered from illness and are enthusiastic about sharing their body’s response to the virus to help further science. Entry points and areas of use are separated accordingly. Clear signage and wayfinding have also been established throughout campus and online for reference.
