CCT Research is a network of clinical research sites located in Arizona and Nebraska conducting studies in the areas of Alzheimer’s Disease, Dermatology, Internal Medicine, and more.

CCT offers an innovative approach to conducting clinical research for the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease: embedding research facilities within established senior living communities, bringing the trial directly to the patients. This approach allows access to many patients who otherwise may not participate in a trial. CCT currently has access to patients in 11 large senior living communities. With experienced staff and an efficient delivery model, CCT aims to provide quality data and strong enrollment with Alzheimer’s and other specialty populations.
