About Us

figure 1

For more than four decades, we have been involved in the design, conduct, and analysis of small and large scale, national and international clinical research studies. These studies ranged from small or large observational studies to Phase II-IV trials testing specific drug or device interventions, funded by the NIH and industry partners, many of them linked to subsequent FDA approval. Our studies use the latest basic science, bioengineering, genetic, biostatistical, and clinical approaches to optimize the acquisition of new knowledge in order to improve the diagnostic and therapeutic foundation of clinical medicine.
