Quality & Integrity
Founded by Frederick Schaerf, M.D., Ph.D., following his training at Johns Hopkins, this 3,300 square foot facility has a strong presence in community, densely populated with adults 55 and older. NPRC has prioritized developing systems to assure the safety and welfare of subjects as well as the integrity of the study data at two locations, allowing subjects to continue their study participation while wintering in Florida.
NPRC has worked hard to establish an excellent reputation and build relationships conducive to physician referrals. This facility collaborates with Imaging Centers for MRI/PET and others, with dedicated private infusion areas including TV viewing and WiFi designed with subject comfort and safety as the priority.
At NPRC, we pride ourselves in our “State of the Art” facility, with features including: separate and private rating rooms, highly trained and experienced staff with long tenure – including neuropsychiatric raters certified on multiple scales, secure double-locked, camera monitored medication room, on-site CSF Sampling/Off-Site Continuous CSF Sampling, CLIA waived laboratory on-site, and well-established initiatives/activities for recruitment including community outreach programs.
