Our Facility

A research facility should be more than state-of-the-art. It should be welcoming, comfortable and convenient.

We want to ensure our sponsors that they will have access to the sophisticated equipment they need and reassure our volunteer patients that we have all the comforts to make them feel as at-home as possible. It’s just one example of how we’re making quality patient care and the future of medicine come together.
