The CPMI clinical research unit location was very carefully considered. The location was chosen to ensure convenience and ease of travel for the volunteers, staff, and sponsors. Emphasis was placed on our location to minimize “travel time”.

Our location is conveniently located to both Miami International Airport (20 minutes) and Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport (30 minutes). Don Shula’s hotel and golf club, located on Main Street in Miami Lakes, is only 5 minutes from the research site. This hotel is especially designed to accommodate business travelers with high-speed internet access in every room, a 24 hour business center, a world class spa, gym and a cyber cafe. Along Main Street there are 2 salons, 10 restaurants, over 30 shops and a multiplex theatre with 17 screens. There is also a Courtyard Marriott and several other hotels in the area. South beach and the hotels on the beaches are also available with a slightly longer drive.
