Clinical Trial Core

The Clinical Trial Core is a group of clinical trialists and bio-statisticians highly experienced in conducting cerebrovascular research.  This group has members who lead clinical trials in stroke and know how to fully initiate, implement, and close out clinical stroke trials.  We have all of the capabilities to serve as an Academic CRO for stroke clinical trials and we have extensive experience preparing INDs on new therapeutic strategies for stroke.  Our team also has extensive experience monitoring clinical trials at remote sites even in other countries.
