The Research Team performing clinical trials include research scientists, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. Clinical trials are critical for developing and delivering evidence-based care. The success of these research studies often rely on clinical research coordinators (CRCs), who carry out many of the key clinical, administrative, and regulatory compliance responsibilities. Clinical research generates data on the safety and efficacy of new treatment options and is designed to answer specific questions about medicine and behavior. Our dedicated Clinical Research team is responsible for ensuring that all trials are conducted in an ethical manner while following Good Clinical Practice. Meet our Research Team:
