northern beaches clinical research
Based in Brookvale in the Northern Beaches, we are a clinical research centre, researching the newest medical treatments and medical devices. Our aim is to collect unbiased data from voluntary research participants to help develop the latest treatments. We focus on you, the participant, enjoying the experience of helping out with research in a safe environment.
We want to build our relationship in the Northern Beaches and become a foundation involved in the local community. People of the Northern Beaches have been unrepresented in clinical research, and now is the opportunity to be involved in our latest research studies to help better the world.
what is Clinical research?
Clinical research, also known as clinical trials, is the main process to find out if a new treatment or medical device is safe and effective in people. There are 4 phases to clinical research, with the earlier phases focusing on participant safety, and the later phases making sure the new treatment is effective.
Without clinical research we would never be able to improve our current medications. On average it takes around 10 years to get a new drug to market, with roughly only 15% of them being approved by the regulatory bodies. All of our research studies are approved by an independent ethics committee and all of your participant data is deidentified.
