Company Overview

Summit Research Network is a medical research organization with research centers currently located in three states. We conduct clinical trials, also referred to as research studies. This process is required for investigational medications. Research studies offer an opportunity for volunteers to participate in research that may ultimately improve treatment for a variety of physical and emotional conditions.

We work in cooperation with pharmaceutical companies to develop medical treatments. Our research centers have been conducting central nervous system (CNS) and general medical studies since 1976 with over 500 completed clinical studies to date. Summit Research Network is a nationally recognized organization which is committed to conducting the highest quality of medical research for its patients.

Our research centers offer professional and experienced staff including:

Physicians (Psychiatry and Internal Medicine)
Physician Assistants
Psychologists
Nurse Practitioners
Registered Nurses
Social Workers
Certified Clinical Research Coordinators
Certified Lab Technicians
Medical Assistants
Support Personnel

Products and Services

We study medication-based treatments for various physical and emotional conditions. Some of these studies are undertaken to enhance our understanding of currently available medications (for example, determining optimal dose schedules). We also conduct research on medications that are not yet available, and look at questions of expanded usage (for example, determining whether an established medical treatment for depression is also effective in treating anxiety). All medications now on the market have gone through this same process.

Many of our studies involve comparisons between a study medication, a commonly prescribed medication, and a placebo (inactive substance). We include placebo groups in some of our studies because a surprising number of people improve when treated with placebos, and the status of patients in the placebo group gives us a comparison base for evaluating the effectiveness of active medications.

Our goal is to expand what is known about medical treatment while offering top-quality patient care. We provide thorough assessments and carefully select individuals who are likely to benefit from our programs. Many of our studies also include a series of free follow-up visits to determine appropriate treatment strategies. All patients are referred for ongoing care following the termination of their participation in a study.
