Our Approach

Our process is participant forward. We focus on the safety and needs of our participants to ensure their health, well-being and enjoyment of a clinical trial. After participants register their interest online, our friendly team will contact them for a pre-screen. This is where we’ll discuss eligibility. If eligible, participants are screened with a doctor to discuss the trial. Participants then participate in a clinical trial at one of our Network clinics. Once the clinical trial is completed, participants are compensated fairly for their time and effort.
