With nearly 20 years of experience and more than 100 clinical trials under our belt, we have become, with time and experience, very good at conducting local trials. So good in fact, that we help other sites around the country conduct research through our Site Maintenance Organization (SMO) capabilities. We also work with pharmaceutical companies and CROs on study design, since we’ve seen just about all of them by now, and know, on a practical “in-the-trenches” level, which are likely to succeed and which appear doomed to (expensive) failure.
Here at the New England Institute for Clinical Research, our dedicated staff is involved in numerous Phase I – Phase III (and occasionally Phase IV, if we believe there is sufficient scientific merit) clinical trials in all aspects of neuroscience research in adults and children, including neurology, psychiatry and pain, as well as non-neuroscience areas such as urology and rheumatology and immunology.
We have all the “bells and whistles” you would expect from a high-caliber research organization, including full laboratory capabilities (locked storage, on-site phlebotomy, sub-zero refrigerator, EKG, digital scales, refrigerated and non-refrigerated centrifuges, etc.) as well as high-speed internet and HIPPA compliant electronic medical records access and conference room space for study monitors. We are all GCP trained and certified, and up to date on all the latest scales used in pharmaceutical and biotech research. Companies we have worked with over the years include (partial list): Acorda, Allergan, Amgen, Astra Zeneca, Auspex, Autonomic Technologies, Bristol Myers Squib, Depomed, Electrocore, Endo, Glaxo Smith Kline, Ipsen, Lilly, MAP, Merck, Merz, Nautilus, Pfizer, Sangamo and UCB.
From small biotech upstart to big pharma, we’ve worked closely and effectively with industry for many years to deliver best-in-class, clean and accurate data, on time, and with streamlined budgetary and contract negotiations, and time-efficient use of central IRB.
