Center Overview

Prime Research is a dedicated Phase I – IV community based research facility that is combined with physicians’ private practices. We are located inside a medical plaza across an acute medical and psychiatric hospital. Our team has 25 years of combined clinical research experience in conducting pediatric and adult clinical trials, in both medical and psychiatric studies. Patients are recruited directly from each physician’s database. Our site has great relationships with other physician clinics, hospitals, and the surrounding community centers in Los Angeles and Orange County.

Mission Statement

Prime Research Management’s mission is to help the pharmaceutical industry discover and develop new and innovative treatments to help patients better manage their healthcare. We aim to do this by successfully conducting clinical research trials for new and upcoming pharmaceutical products. Our goal is to usher in tomorrow’s treatments and make it available for everyone today.
