"Facilitating Research One Patient at a Time"
Clinical Trial Network is currently located in a 10,000 sq. ft. office site and is expected to expand in Fall 2012 to a larger facility in Houston, Texas. This state-of-the-art multi-specialty facility currently conducts research in diabetes, cholesterol, hypertension, pain and constipation to name a few. CTN's capabilities continue to grow and we are able to conduct research in all four phases (Phase I, II, III, IV) of clinical research, while consistently delivering speed and quality to all pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients as well as leading Contract Research Organizations (CROs). Clinical Trial Network opened its doors in 2004. During 2010, a Phase I research center was added to provide research capabilities and has since expanded the facility to include an on-site, 12-bed overnight facility dedicated to overnight studies.
Clinical Trial Network's(CTN) goal is to raise health awareness by providing quality medical attention and outstanding health education to the local under served community while also providing opportunities for them to participate in ground-breaking clinical research studies in a safe environment.

Because our facility is strategically located in a Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Zone, it allows us to serve the local underprivileged and under served surrounding communities. There are multiple buses that pass by our location, making it easily accessible to anyone throughout Houston. Additionally, we are able to offer transportation during certain studies and make the extra effort to ensure our patients take advantage of this opportunity.
At Clinical Trial Network, there is always a physician available on-site during business hours and when needed.

Clinical Trial Network's database is made up of more than 8,500 pre-qualified, research-ready candidates of various genders, races, ethnicity and age. In addition to this database, we have strategically located our offices in an underserved and underprivileged area in the heart of Houston, Texas. Home to more than 2.2 million people, Houston is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the United States. This allows CTN access to virtually every type of demographic and ethnicity, and in-turn provides an ideal database of potential candidates for sponsors. Our current database reflects the following demographics:
50 percent African American
20 percent Hispanic
10 percent Caucasian
20 percent Asian
Clinical Trial Network uses a central IRB.
