New Horizon Research Center is a dedicated, multi-specialty clinical research site serving the Miami community. Founded in 2009 when its owner, Yolanda Rodriguez, APRN, recognized the need for a patient-centered clinical research site in the local community. While speaking to her patients who had participated in clinical research studies, she began to understand some of the most difficult parts of their experiences. She sought to create a culture within her site that would ease the mind and burden of the study subjects. Now, over ten years later, New Horizon Research Center has successfully conducted over one hundred clinical trials with the highest standards in patient care and data integrity, and by fostering relationships with its subjects and their families, has become a mainstay of the community.
For over ten years, New Horizon Research Center has conducted Phase II, III, and IV trials in most therapeutic areas. We are a well-seasoned site that has experience working with and meeting the tight deadlines of the largest sponsors/CROs.
We have worked with and have great relationships with companies such as:
We have successfully conducted trials of the following therapeutic areas:
Our site offers outpatient facilities but can accommodate subjects for a 12 hour visit stay, as well as weekend visits when necessary and can collect and store PK/PD specimens, even beyond normal business hours. We are fully equipped with multiple centrifuges, a refrigerated centrifuge, dry incubators, electrocardiogram machines, microscopes, a -70°C to -80°C freezer, a -20°C to -30°C freezer, multiple 2-8°C refrigerators, a crash cart, and a comprehensive cloud-based temperature monitoring system which envelops all investigational product storage. All of our equipment is calibrated yearly. We also offer our patients transportation to and from the office.
Our lead Principal Investigator, Lazaro. D. Nunez is a medical doctor in Pediatrics, Dermatology, and Family Medicine, and has extensive research experience. He along with Yolanda Rodriguez, APRN, Sub-Investigator and Lab Director, are on-site one hundred percent of the time. We also staff other Principal Investigators with various areas of specialty and research experience, all of which have their own practice to refer patients from. They are listed as follows:
New Horizon Research Center has a committed and dedicated staff with over 40 years of combined research experience.
Our team consists of the following:
All of our staff is Good Clinical Practice (GCP) certified.
Our internal database consists of over 8800 subjects with a diverse set of ethnicity, race, and age.
Our CTMS system, Realtime, allows us to run reports through our database of subjects to find those that are within certain demographics while also having specific medical conditions, treatments, and surgical procedures. This allows us to give sponsors/CROs highly accurate and precise feasibility numbers, as well as a strong pool of potential patients for our recruitment team to start from.
We also have a strong referral network of physicians who happily refer patients to us, as well as allow us to enter their practice to speak to their staff, conduct lunch and learns, and spread awareness of the trials we have currently.
