JEM Research Institute
130 JFK Drive, Suite 203
Atlantis, FL 33462
JEM Research Institute was founded by three neurologist, Dr. James Goldenberg, Dr. Eric Kramer and Dr. Mark Goldstein. Our neurologists have over 60 years combined clinical experience.
We have been conducting in hospital clinical trials since 1998 but established a dedicated research center two and a half years ago. We now operate in a 4,200+ square foot site and draw from a large database of patients in a robust neurology practice composed of four physicians and a nurse practitioner. We are part of a 70 physician multi-specialty group with approximately 30 primary physicians. We have met or exceeded target enrollment in all trials to date.
Both the research site and the practice are on the campus of a 460 bed mixed academic/private community hospital. We have access to a group owned state of the art MRI and PET scanner adjacent to our facilities.
JEM Research Institute had conducted Clinical Research Studies in the following areas:
JEM Research occupies a custom designed 4,200 square foot research facility which is located within walking distance to public transportation and is 20 minutes from Palm Beach International Airport. Our facility has dedicated outpatient exam and infusion rooms allowing for multiple visit types to be conducted simultaneously. Our lab allows for onsite drawing, storing (-20 Fahrenheit refrigerator), and processing of samples. The drug room has been outfitted with double locked doors and cabinets. We also have several private monitor rooms with high speed internet access as well as a large conference room. Our patient lounge is equipped with amenities designed for extended patient visits.
Dr. Eric Kramer
Dr. Kramer obtained his undergraduate degree in Psychology from Glassboro State College, from there he went on to Temple University to obtain his Medical degree and post graduate degree in Neurology. His neurology residency was completed at the Pennsylvania Hospital and his subsequent fellowship in the sub-specialized field of Neuro-oncology at the Children’s hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania. During his training he worked at the Massachusetts General Hospital and the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. He served as an attending physician at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School at Camden at the Cooper Hospital. Eventually he became the division head of Neurology at the Institution in which he served for six years.
Dr. Kramer has served as Principal Investigator on numerous trials such as dementia of the Alzheimer’s type, Post Herpetic Neuralgia and chronic pain just to name a few. This experience has allowed Dr. Kramer to be at the forefront of innovative medical treatment and drug development for many neurological conditions before it reaches the general public.
Dr. Mark Goldstein
