"My role is to ensure that medicine, research and compassion builds a relationship between our patients and our medical clinic."

Director Of Clinical Trial Operations
ARI Mission Statement
As one of the products of CHNC, Alpha Research Institute, LLC. is a Houston-based Research Unit specializing in all therapeutic areas of clinical trials. The world is challenged every day with ongoing illnesses and new diagnoses of medical problems. As a result, the need for continued development and improvement of treatment options is vital to our readiness as healthcare practitioners. The innovative work in Clinical Research is critical to this process. ARI has identified areas where the levels of understanding of the benefits of clinical research for certain patient populations are limited. As a result, the clinic works very closely with community-based organizations, social services, and any other public forums. This allows us to educate, inform, and address questions and concerns related to the specifics of clinical trials.
