Experienced Investigators. Streamlined Process. Proven Performance.

Founded in 1993, CRN is an investigator-owned network of clinical research sites. CRN is one of the largest alliances of clinical trial research sites in the US. When you partner with CRN, you gain access to our large and efficient network. We offer our partners a convenient solution for expedited site identification and study start up, including the efficiencies of a single contract, a single budget and one point of contact.

Members of CRN are thought leaders in our sub-specialties and widely recognized for performance in clinical research trials. We are unique in the industry. We forge partnerships with sponsors and our focus is on the conduct of on time, high quality Phase I – IV clinical trials and drug and device trials in both adult and pediatric patients.

CRN provides a comprehensive solution from start to finish, providing site identification, administrative services such as a single budget and contract, and a cohesive enrollment strategy by our member sites. All of our investigators attend an annual Investigator Meeting to ensure CRN is set to meet or exceed industry standards. Experienced investigators are another value added service you benefit from when partnering with CRN.

Our mission is to enhance the quality of trials by partnering with and providing you with forward thinking, cost-effective methods combined with performance driven clinical sites known for being on the cutting edge while maintaining the highest level of quality of research in the 21st Century.

CRN is not a SMO (Site Management Organization) or CRO (Clinical Research Organization). Rather it is a collaborative group of individual research sites dedicated to quality and performance.

One Budget. One Contract. One Stop.

The value of working with CRN lies in our proven ability to facilitate and streamline the clinical trial process with a unique business model of centralized study management.

Our principal investigators average more than 25 years of research experience, are board certified both in their specialty as well as by the Associate of Clinical Research Professionals and considered “Thought Leaders” in their respective fields. CRN has the knowledge, experience and a level of efficiency you will not find with any other investigative networks.

We facilitate and streamline the research process by providing one point of contact. We centralize study management by coordinating all regulatory documents, start up facilitation, metrics and site payment with one budget, one contract and one point of contact.

Our network is designed for quality and efficiency. CRN’s performance, retention and ability to meet contractual numbers on studies speaks for itself. We have a passion for research and strive to make a difference in the industry and the world of clinical research. CRN promotes the highest levels of excellence and quality in our network. Business is conducted with integrity and according to strict ethical standards. CRN’s level of oversight and due diligence makes our network an excellent choice for a sponsor.

Our goal is to successfully complete your trial and deliver results on time and on budget.
