Our dedicated research staff has extensive understanding and experience in Dermatology. Our site is GCP and IATA certified. All research staff members are Phlebotomy trained. Site has Spanish and Portuguese speaking staff members. In the overwhelming majority of studies, we at least enroll the number of patients agreed upon with the sponsor. We frequently over enroll. We are often asked to enroll more than our original goal to help sponsors reach national/worldwide targets. Coordinators offer immediate turn-around times for regulatory documents, clinical trial documents and data entry.
