Meet Our Physicians

Meet our Coordinators

Our dedicated research site is staffed with 6 full-time Clinical Research Coordinators and 1 Sub-Investigator, who work alongside Dr. Davidson and Dr. Clarke to move each trial in the right direction. With over 25 years of nursing and research experience, our Coordinators are some of the best in the industry. The Coordination staff consists of one FNP, two CNAs, a BS in Health Science, and one LPN coordinator.

They are each assigned a maximum of three clinical trials. This allows each Coordinator to fully dedicate their time to each trial they undertake, while providing their subjects the time and follow-up they truly need. Additionally, our coordinators are AED, CPR, IV, and IATA trained/certified.

Our Coordinators function in a team-focused environment with 24-hour access to the Principal Investigator and Clinical Research Director. Our team atmosphere and open communication allow us to provide cohesive and consistent care to our subjects as well as accurate and detailed data collection.

“Awesome place to go to do research trials! Staff is very friendly. I like that it is a small business created in Knoxville.”

I felt so welcomed when I entered this research center from the friendly front office to the medical staff. Building is spotless! Give this place a try if you’re looking to get into a clinical trial.

“Great screening tools to get the perfect fit between test subject and investigative team. Warm, personable staff.”
