Alpine Research Organization is an independent research site that was founded in 2007 and has conducted clinical trials in cardiology, family practice, ophthalmology, nephrology, psychiatry/mental health,  metabolism and endocrinology.


What We Do

As a team we work together to conduct phase 2-4 clinical trials with pharmaceutical companies big and small.  It starts with recruiting and enrolling qualified candidates.  Visits to the clinic will vary depending on the protocol and treatment indication.  Patient and client satisfaction is of utmost importance and our dedicated research team is committed to provide a positive experience and reliable data.

No insurance is needed.  All study visits, medical procedures and medication are provided at no cost.  Study participants may be compensated for time and travel.

Did You Know?



Before a medication can be approved by the FDA it must go through 4 stages of clinical trials.  Prior to human participation, a safety phase is completed in the lab.  This is called "preclinical". This must be done prior to Phase 1 initiation.  Please see the slide to the left for Phase 1-4 details.


Participant Safety Comes First

Medical research and development teams are required to follow strict rules to make sure that participants are safe.  These rules are enforced by the Federal Government.  Each clinical trial also follows a careful study plan or protocol that describes what the researchers will do.  The principal investigator, or head researcher, is responsible for making sure that the protocol is followed.

An Institutional Review Board, or IRB, at each study site must approve every clinical trial in the United States.  An IRB is made up of doctors, scientists, and lay people, like yourself, who are dedicated to making sure that the study participants are not exposed to unnecessary risks.  Members of an IRB regularly review the study and its results. They make sure that risks (or potential harm) to participants are as low as possible.


You Can Make a Difference

 “We need to spread the word about the value of participating in clinical trials,” says Dr. Collins. “Signing up for a clinical trial may benefit medical research and help future generations. But it is not strictly an altruistic endeavor.  In many instances, trial participants do gain personal advantages, such as improved disease outcomes or better health.”
