Currently Enrolling Research Studies

A research study in the medical field assesses new medications, treatment options, or devices. These studies are crucial as they introduce innovative solutions to the public, potentially saving lives and combating illnesses. Without them, many of the medications widely used today would not exist.

Why Participate In A Research Study?

We’ve been providing quality research and patient care since 1976. For many, we are the first step in getting help and gaining information about a medical illness or condition. Our team of doctors, nurses and clinicians are researching to find more effective medications and medical advancements.

We perform research studies of approved and investigational medications for various physical and emotional conditions. Some of these studies are undertaken to enhance our understanding of currently available medications (for example, determining optimal dose schedules). We also conduct research on medications that are not available to the general public except in research studies, and look at questions of expanded usage (for example, determining whether an established medical treatment for depression is also effective in treating anxiety). All medications available by prescription in the U.S. must go through this highly regulated, scientific process to evaluate whether an investigational medication can be approved and made available to all.

Exclusive medical access

You may gain access to investigational medications that are not otherwise available outside the study.

Studies catered to you

Before enrolling, you will be given all the details and information you need to decide whether a study is right for you.

An emphasis on quality care

Clinical trials conducted at Summit Research are carefully monitored for quality care.

Make a difference

Your participation helps others in the future by contributing to medical research. Society may benefit from the information obtained from this research. Results from our studies are used to develop new investigational medications and improve current therapies, which may help you and others with similar conditions in the future.

Welcome to Summit Research

Working Together For Better Future Treatments & Better Health

Summit Research Network has been dedicated to delivering top-notch research and patient care. As a crucial resource, many turn to us as their first point of contact for information and assistance regarding medical conditions. Our multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, and clinicians is tirelessly working towards discovering more effective treatments and medical breakthroughs.

We conduct research studies on approved and investigational medications for a range of physical and emotional ailments. Some studies aim to deepen our understanding of existing medications, such as optimizing dosage regimens. Additionally, we delve into medications not widely accessible, exploring expanded applications like evaluating whether a known treatment for depression could be effective for anxiety. Every prescription medication in the U.S. undergoes a rigorous scientific evaluation process to determine its approval and accessibility to the public.

Frequently Asked Questions

We created this FAQ section to provide you with answers to questions that we commonly hear from patients. However, if you still have questions, please call us at 503-228-CARE (2273) for more specific answers to your important questions.

Yes, you can stay on your current medication while you participate in a study. Oftentimes we actually require you to be on a stable dose of your medication during your participation.

We recommend you share all your health information with your doctor, but ultimately it’s up to you! You are not required to let your doctor know about your study participation but in turn, we are also happy to translate any necessary information to your doctor for you!

You don’t always have to be previously diagnosed to participate in a trial, but for some trials, a previous diagnosis is required.

Every medication and treatment that passes through Clinvest Research has been previously tested on humans and been declared safe for further testing.

Our clinical trials are double-blind trials meaning that neither the patients nor the researchers know who is getting a placebo and who is getting the treatment. A control group is given a placebo while another group is given the drug (or treatment) being studied. That way, we can compare the drug's effectiveness against the placebo's effectiveness.

You are allowed to remove yourself from a study at any point in the process. However, don't ghost us! We won't be mad. Because the nature of our work is reporting, we'd love to understand your reasons for leaving the study and collect materials back from you when necessary.
