PMG Research (PMG), an integrated network of clinical research facilities in the southeastern U.S., has established its 11th clinical research site, PMG Research of Rocky Mount. PMG Research has assumed ownership and operation of the clinical research department at Boice-Willis Clinic in Rocky Mount, N.C., further expanding PMG’s presence in eastern North Carolina. This new site enhances PMG’s access to an additional 130,000 patients.
For the patients in Rocky Mount and the surrounding communities, this brings an increased opportunity to participate in a clinical trial, whether as patients of Boice-Willis Clinic or as new research participants. For the pharmaceutical and clinical trials industry, it means collaboration with a greater number of physician investigators across a wider range of therapeutic areas, increased physician referrals to the PMG network and better access to patients.
PMG Research is a network of sites founded in 1979 that provide clinical research services to pharmaceutical companies and CROs, with access to 1.87 million patients through its partnerships with large physician practices and integrated health systems. PMG Research now is comprised of 11 hub sites and spans 60 physician practices. The mission of PMG Research is to bring clinical research to as many lives as possible, which in turn contributes to the advancement of medicine through the development of new medicines, vaccines and medical devices.
Founded in 1914, Boice-Willis Clinic is the area's oldest private, multi-specialty healthcare practice. Boice-Willis Clinic also has conducted clinical research since 1995 and founded a dedicated research department in 2007. Its physicians have experience in cardiology, dermatology, gastroenterology, hematology, internal medicine, nephrology, neurology, oncology, pulmonology and rheumatology research.
