Our entire staff prides itself on providing rapid study start-up, expeditious, precise project management and timely protocol completion.
- Our proficient submission techniques enable us to receive approval and initiate studies within a week of receipt of final protocol.
- Our unique tracking system ensures an accurate chain of custody for critical documents as well as investigational substances.
- While we are always glad to utilize a central IRB, we also maintain a current database of FDA inspected Institutional Review Boards in order to ensure rapid and unconditioned approvals and to assure strict adherence to regulations regarding the protection of human research subjects.
- We utilize one of the most innovative and dynamic clinical trial management systems that enable our staff to quickly identify even the most difficult patient populations and carefully track our patients throughout the study. In our ever-changing industry, where accuracy is vital, information is sensitive and timing is crucial, this highly effective data management system is invaluable.
In 2009, CTN was chosen by the State of Texas, the County of Harris Department of Economic Development and the City of Houston as a target industry. The warm welcome and unfailing encouragement that we have received from this community has enabled us to thrive and grow at an amazing pace. Here at CTN, we incorporate the knowledge and experience of all of our professional staff to meet the designated needs and time lines of our clients. It is not only our goal, but also the expectation of our patients to work diligently TODAY to bring the drugs of TOMORROW to our community.
