Who We Are
We bring solutions to life.
We are a clinically-focused medical research organization that accelerates the launch of new drug therapies and devices currently in the testing stages of development.
Since 2003, our team of researchers and partners has committed themselves every day to the science of health. Today, we continue that dedication through our collaboration with the pharmaceutical and biotechnical community to uncover new treatments that save lives and enhance or improve quality of life.
We brave new frontiers to advance scientific discovery and medical knowledge by combining human touch and scientific rigor to create moments that change lives, one clinical trial at a time.
In 2017, we furthered our commitment to discovery, unveiling a new name and positon to better capture our mission: We emerge as Avanza Medical Research Center. Advancing the heart of research.
What makes us different is the difference we make.
Our passion for seeing things differently burns bright. Here, the rigors of scientific research meet the warmth of human compassion. In our center, data becomes determination, precision becomes perseverance and possibility turns into potential.
We are changing the lives of patients by providing them access to promising, new therapeutic solutions. We’re impacting the lives of physicians seeking to advance knowledge in their field, and we’re connecting the pharmaceutical and biotech community to qualified volunteers and medical experts seeking to make a difference in their own lives and the world.
This is how we’re changing the world of health. One clinical trial at a time.
Our team is committed to providing an unparalleled level of quality service and performance excellence to all our partners and clients.
Our leadership team and research staff dedicate themselves to the highest ethical standards of research practice.
