Our Mission Statement
Mission Research strives to provide the highest quality care and the highest standards for our research patients. Participation in clinical trails allows our patients access to the latest research and treatment development.
Clinical Research provides quality, clinical research with the highest standards for patient safety.
Mission Research Institute works with top pharmaceutical companies to conduct Phase II-IV clinical research studies in central Texas. Participation in clinical trials allows access to the latest research treatment developments. Mission Research Institute continues to bring you the most promising therapies of the future.
What is a Clinical Trial?
A clinical trial (part of clinical research) is a research study in human volunteers to answer specific health questions. Carefully conducted, clinical trials are the fastest and safest way to find treatments that work in people and to contribute to medical research.
Participants in clinical trials can play a more active role in their own healthcare, gain access to new research treatments before they are widely available, and help others by contributing to medical research. We have many ongoing clinical trials to treat a number of ailments including Device Studies, High Cholesterol, Peripheral Artery Disease, and Hypertension.
