Our internal recruiting department allows for rapid start-up of recruiting activities, and accurate recruitment of appropriate patients. Our business model also allows for the utilization of a central or independent IRB, at the client's discretion.

In addition to being a responsive

focused clinical trial partner to our clients, IRSI is dedicated to the health and safety of the patients who enroll in our studies, and to the integrity of our trial results.

To this end, utmost attention is given to regulatory and ethical standards, and to protocol adherence and accurate reporting.

Quality checks are performed at critical points throughout the study process. Further, one hundred percent of compiled statistical data is verified against associated data records.

Finally, IRSI's professionalism is evident to sponsors and patients alike in our superb customer service and our energized yet cordial atmosphere at both research sites. We invite you to visit us!
