The Center for Pharmaceutical Research has two primary missions, each equally important: to provide ethical, safe, cutting-edge medical care for our volunteers and high-quality, clean data to our sponsors.
CPR is a privately owned clinical research center that specializes in phase I, II, III , and IV clinical trials for the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and medical device industries.
John E. Ervin, M.D., F.A.C.P., F.A.C.R. founded The Center for Pharmaceutical Research in 1986, and serves as the President, Medical Director, and Principal Investigator for many of our studies. Since that time, The Center for Pharmaceutical Research has conducted over 600 clinical trials in all areas of multispecialty research.
