Fairview Clinical Trials

Fairview Clinical Trials Services (CTS) is a clinical trial management organization conducting Phase II-IV outpatient clinical trials with emphasis on patient recruitment and accelerating the sponsors’ drug development timeline. We bring people and resources together to make drug-related trials run smoothly. We do this by moving research into community clinics, closer to our participants. We ensure successfully completed trials in a responsible, timely and ethical manner.

We match principal investigators and clinical studies in areas of mutual interest. We negotiate contracts, assure regulatory compliance, and expedite protocol implementation and completion.
