Learn about our ability to rapidly start up and enroll studies:

Quality Processes

Our research team is committed to the highest standards of performance in the conduct of clinical trials completed at our facility. We adhere stringently to all GCP and ICH guidelines, federal regulations and the study protocol. Every study is assigned a primary, as well as secondary, research coordinator that is fully prepared to assume the duties of the primary coordinator on a temporary or permanent basis.

We perform quality assurance audits on all trials which may include the examination of the investigator site file, source documents, case report forms, patient informed consent, inclusion/exclusion criteria, compliance with SOPs, monitoring reports and query resolution process. All results are discussed with appropriate team members.

Recruiting and Retention

Volunteer Recruiting

Recruiting begins at Advanced Discovery Research with a meeting of the entire team where we plan our strategy based on the needs of each study. Everyone takes ownership and has a role to play.

We draw on a long history of successful recruiting campaigns. Some of these include medical practice referrals, television and radio advertising, print media, and internet marketing. We are also active in the community, efficaciously recruiting at local health fairs and expositions. As a result, our database includes over 5,000 volunteers. The size of our subject pool and the dedication of our staff ensures a positive outcome for enrollment.

Volunteer Retention

We begin our relationship with our volunteers by making sure they have a clear understanding of the study and whether it makes sense for them to participate. We answer all of their questions and address any concerns they may have. Our informed consent process is very thorough. Dr. Purselle, or the sub-investigator on the study, meets with every volunteer and reviews, verifies and signs the informed consent. We also use our experience to help select volunteers that have the characteristics that are most likely to complete the study.

We add to this solid foundation by assisting our volunteers with any additional needs as they are presented. We are always available to answer questions and discuss their progress. When appropriate, we serve as a bridge to their primary care physician, ensuring that study treatments and results support their regular medical care, whenever possible.

We care about the well-being of our volunteers, and they know they will be treated with respect. This type of relationship creates a satisfying experience for participants and results in a strong completion outcome.
