Phase I


Find the right sites for your clinical program, right from the start.

The Elite Research Network includes state-of-the-art Clinical Pharmacology Units (CPUs) that specialize in Phase I trials. These sites all utilize central IRBs, and all are located adjacent to or within a block of a hospital. Our Phase I study teams consist of highly trained, experienced physicians and study coordinators.

Our capabilities are distinct from many other Phase I units due to our access to highly specialized patient populations. In addition, with access to research databases of potential participants and dedicated teams of recruitment specialists, our Phase I sites have earned a reputation for consistently meeting and exceeding our clients’ enrollment goals.

Our Phase I sites have experience with:

  • Bioavailability/Bioequivalence (BA/BE) Studies
  • Dose Ranging Studies (SAD/MAD)
  • Drug Interaction Studies
  • First in Human Studies
  • Food Effect Studies
