Our principal investigator, Hector Wiltz, M.D., C.P.I., is on site full time. This is because our
office houses both; our research site and Dr. Wiltz’ private practice.
Our site includes a designated research area with private examining rooms to provide confidentiality and comfort for our subjects. Furthermore, our facility also includes a secured area for studied medications, case report forms and record storage. A private office is also available to ensure comfortable, peaceful and undistracted monitoring visits for our CRA’s.
Our clinical research center is located inside the Kendall Medical Center, which is on the corner of Bird Road (SW 40th Street) and 117th Avenue with the Florida Turnpike running parallel to the center. The Florida Turnpike South can be accessed from either I-95, I- 595, I -75 or the 836 West. The center can also be accessed from the Palmetto Expressway (826 North or South) by exiting on Bird Road and heading West just past 117th avenue.

Francisco Moncada, R.N., B.S.N., C.C.R.C.
President & Director of Clinical Research
Mr. Moncada is the President and Director of Clinical Research for the four separate branches that structure FXM Research. Francisco Moncada has worked with Dr. Wiltz for over 22 years and has extensive experience in most dermatological conditions and disorders. In the year 2000, Mr. Moncada founded his first clinical research site FXM Research Corp. with operations in Miami, FL. Today, the site in Miami has conducted over 115 Clinical trials in dermatology under the Direction/Management of Mr. Moncada.
In late 2006, after many years of achieving outstanding results conducting clinical trials, Mr. Moncada widened his prospective to the international arena by founding FXM Research International which today, consists of two solid and experienced research sites in dermatology located in Belize City, Central America. Together, these sites have successfully conducted over 28 studies.
To further widen the scope of opportunities FXM Research has to offer to Pharmaceuticals and CRO Sponsors in the United States, the latest branch of FXM Research, FXM Research Miramar, with operations in the city of Miramar, FL; was founded in late 2008. Today, the youngest of the four sites is proud to have conducted over 27 studies in Dermatology. As Director, Mr. Moncada’ job is to handle all Regulatory aspects involved in the trials, oversee the success and achievement of all personnel assisting in the trials, and supervise subject’s conduct during the trial. Mr. Moncada’ management directive is to ensure all of the FXM Research sites convey the same unequivocal quality of standards each has to offer. Mr. Moncada has attended a GCP seminar, sponsored by ACRP, and completed Investigator Training for Medical research, sponsored by WIRB, along with Dr. Wiltz in May 2004. He is certified in HIV/OSHA/BBP-TB, CPR, ACLS, PALS, AND IATA regulations.

We are always ranked among the highest enrolling sites in trials we participate in. This is
because of our extensive patient/subject database. Our patient/subject database consists of all patients treated in Dr. Wiltz’ private practice, as well as, FXM’s own subject database.
Our patient/subject target population consists of the following and includes males and females of all age groups:
19% African American
Our subjects give us several reasons why they decide to participate in our Clinical Research studies. The ones they most often mention are:
- To help in the development of new medications that may offer better treatment or even
cures for chronic diseases.
- The availability of diagnostic tests and medical evaluation of a particular disease or medical condition without worrying about the cost.
- The Hope for a new approach or treatment that finally offers some relief.
For all subjects' database management, we comply with privacy and confidentiality of all HIPAA regulations.
For all regulatory issues we adhere to the assigned Central Institutional Review Board.
