CNRI founded in 1991, specializes in phase I-IV inpatient and outpatient clinical trials for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression, among others and has successfully completed over 200 CNS studies. We also have inpatient facilities to conduct phase I and sleep studies in patients and healthy volunteers.

CNRI prides itself on rapid enrollment of appropriate patients with a very good retention rate. We always meet our enrollment goals and in most cases exceed our enrollment by 2 or 3 times with a focus on high quality data. In addition, our site has been recognized by several pharmaceutical companies for having a very good placebo/drug response separation. We have board certified internists in addition to psychiatrists that review and sign all safety data such as labs, ECGs, perform medical/psychiatric evaluations, adverse event monitoring and assessment of adverse event study drug relationship. All patients are evaluated by the PI, psychiatrists, internists, psychologist level raters, nurses, and study coordinators throughout their study participation.
