History of the Alliance

Founding site Principal Investigators formed Clinical Trial Centers Alliance with Bobbie Theodore in 2000 to share a business development and sponsor relations team as well as best practices and operational and therapeutic expertise.

Our unique model has proven very successful. The Alliance has grown to include eight sites with locations in major metropolitan markets across the US. We have added complementary service providers to our Alliance to provide full solutions to run clinical programs.

Originally only conducting psychiatry studies, our sites now execute clinical trials across central nervous system and internal medicine indications. Psychiatry is still at our core with inpatient and outpatient capabilities across all major indications and phases.

Participation in the Alliance helps our member sites deliver consistent excellence in the clinical studies they conduct, and the study site selection coordination we offer is advantageous for not only our sites, but also sponsors and CROs.

In 2019 Clinical Trial Centers Alliance completed a strategic merger with trial site organizations, Collaborative Neuroscience Research (CNS) and Hassman Research Institute (HRI), to form Apex Innovative Sciences, a leading provider of clinical development and trial site services.
