What is
a clinical trial?

It’s testing medications to help advance medical research.

It's spending time with other participants in a great environment.

It’s also about receiving compensation through an indemnity.

We are now recruiting for recreational opiate users.

Reducing the time of your medical exams is always one of our priorities. To do so, we have recently reconfigured the layout of our centre and made a few updates to our processes.

Today, we are proud to announce that, over the last 12 months, we have reduced the average duration of first screening visits by 43 minutes.

Excellent news!
