Ten years ago, the dream to provide innovative treatments to our community began in the heart of Maria Vasoncelos RN, Founder and Director of Medsol Clinical Research Center. She began this mission “to provide care the old-fashioned way®” began and her motto is “Better Care Through Research®”.
Medsol Clinical Research Center was established in the fall of 2009. Since then, the team has grown to include several physicians in various areas of specialty, four study coordinators, a nurse practitioner and a pharmacist. Collectively, our team exceeds over 28 years of experience in research. We pride ourselves in being leaders in advance Pediatric and Adult Clinical Research, but above all the superior quality of care that our participants receive.
Clinical trials can provide the opportunity for people with a particular disease process to receive innovative treatments and the possibility of enhancing their quality of life. This opportunity might not have been available to them until the medication or device is approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) years later.
There are no social or economic barriers as insurance is not needed to participate. Clinical trials are voluntary and participants may withdraw at any time. All trial related visits, medications/devices and tests are provided at no cost. In most cases, compensation for time and travel may be provided.
If you live in the Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Fort Myers, Venice, Englewood, or Sarasota areas; call, email, or stop by to learn more about us! We even have had study participants from out-of-state. Our door is welcome to anyone in need.
The volunteers that participate in clinical trials are everyday heroes. Although not every study is a success, everyone is a hero. We are currently enrolling in both adult and pediatric studies.
