The Austin Institute for Clinical Research (AICR) is a multispecialty research organization devoted to the performance of high-quality clinical trials while focusing on patient safety and retention. Our mission statement is simple: Through good clinical practices and a safety-first mentality, we strive to produce excellent data for, and build relationships with, Sponsors and CROs. This singular focus has allowed AICR to grow quickly since its inception in 2013.
AICR has experience in running Phase II-IV trials, with quick contract and regulatory document turn-around. All coordinators and investigators are frequently and regularly trained on Good Clinical Practices and FDA regulations. Many of our subjects are recruited directly from our primary investigator’s dermatology practices, although we have extensive experience when necessary with local and central advertising. We take pride in at least meeting, more often exceeding, our contracted recruitment goals.
AICR is dedicated to keeping at the cutting edge of technology. Recruitment from patient database is simple due to the use of an electronic health record. In addition, AICR utilizes Clinical Trial Management Software (CTMS) to help efficiently administer trials. We have experience with all of the common electronic data capture (EDC) systems, and have the fastest broadband connection available for data transfer.
AICR has the required resources to effectively administer nearly all trials. These include dedicated refrigerators, -20 and -70 freezers, EKG machine, a professional camera system, an autoclave, and a crash cart. All equipment is calibrated annually and maintained professionally.
