Facilities CLICK HERE TO GO BACK TO THE NUTRACEUTICAL PAGE

We are an independent research facility, and therefore we have had the freedom to craft a facility that we feel is in the best interest of conducting nutraceutical trials.  Our current building was completed in 2001, with the unique needs of study conduct in mind.  It was designed by our Medical Director (Harold Bays MD), with substantive input from the entire research staff.  As the result of decades of research experience, we feel we have created a research environment for study participants that is second to none. 

Our free-standing two story research building is approximately 12,000 square feet, plus over 3500 square feet of mostly storage area in the basement.

In addition to the unique amenities and the unique physical properties of our building, we have not forgotten that it is the professional and friendly nature of our staff, as well as our profound respect for our study monitors that has established our reputation for research excellence.  Yes, we have gone through extraordinary efforts to ensure that study participants have the best physical surroundings.  But in addition, our staff continues our personal commitment to provide the kind of pleasant, professional, and friendly personnel interactions that has become such a well-known signature of our site. 

Nice buildings are important.  But nice people are just as important.
