Northwest Research

Clinical research studies are a critical step in developing safe, reliable, and effective medications, devices, and treatment regimens. There are several phases of research through which a new product or device must pass before it is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and released for use by the general public. Northwest Research contracts with pharmaceutical companies to find volunteers for the future of medicine by participating in clinical research.
