The Center for Metabolism and Mitochondrial Medicine (C3M) facilitates ongoing and new research that addresses the role of metabolism and mitochondria in physiology and their contribution to disease pathology. Learn more about the research at C3M.

Pitt+Me Clinical Trials

The Pitt+Me initiative is a program of the University of Pittsburgh's Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) that engages researchers, patients, and volunteers from the greater Pittsburgh community in an effort to advance science and improve health for future generations.

We encourage you to join the more than 100,000 participants in the Pitt+Me Registry who have signed up to receive our newsletter and hear more about research opportunities that may be of interest.
