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.


In addition, Alpha owns and operates its very own advertising/marketing agency. Our business is dedicated to creating, planning, and handling advertising and sometimes other forms of promotion. As well, our agency works in developing marketing strategies to increase patient recruitment. Our multidisciplinary agency’s executive staff consists of a conceptual team, graphic designers, videographers, photographers, social media managers, and a vice president that handles concept and design.

Finally, the need to increase the participation among minority subjects has required that we implement transportation as a routine part of our comprehensive service. Furthermore, please know that we offer free transportation anywhere in the Houston area; and our vehicles are chauffeured by professional, courteous, friendly, and safe drivers who have extensive knowledge of the Houston area and the surrounding suburbs. Moreover, we have obtained a commercial insurance policy that allows us to be able to safely transport our patients. For more information please feel free to visit our website . Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you soon.
