Client Testimonials

Dr. Hudefi, Nichole and the entire team at Woodland Research Northwest have been a pleasure to work with. The attention to detail in this complex clinical trial was critical to its successful execution. The identification of proper patients and the number randomized significantly contributed to meeting our study timelines. The site's overall performance provided us with a high level of confidence and we would not hesitate to work with them in the future.
ERG’s robust Business Development group identified us as a Sponsor executing a trial in the same population from which ERG recently completed another study. Essentially, ERG had patients with our target indication waiting for the next trial opportunity. From contract to screening, ERG’s seamless start-up process led to the successful activation of five clinical sites in one month! In addition to start-up, their central recruitment team developed a customized plan to fit our enrollment needs with highly visible, timely support from senior management. ERG’s motivation and collaborative nature has made them an absolute pleasure to do business with. We have an exceptionally high level of confidence that they will deliver complex clinical studies on schedule.
"You have all been a pleasure to work with. I have appreciated your professionalism and diligence. There is more work to be done for us at XXXX, and the anxiety will continue a bit longer for some, but due to CPMI’s significant contribution a lot of the weight has been removed."
"I have collaborated with Lori Wright and many of her investigators for over 10 years. I have always found Lori to be remarkably effective. She has a keen understanding of specific trial needs as well as the capabilities and capacity of the investigators she represents."
"For more than 5 years, I have been relying on Lori Wright for critical advice on CNS clinical trial sites. Her unrivaled insights into investigator qualifications, capacity, and readiness have made her the most important go to consultant for clinical trial outfitting in the industry. We have come to depend on her high-value professional clinical site consultations as part of our routine preparations for both new studies and rescue operations"
Working with Lori Wright and the group of clinical research sites she represents is one of the easiest decisions I make when executing a CNS trial. The principal investigators are among the best in the industry and are able to make valuable contributions to development programs by thoughtfully considering scientific issues and generating quality data. Lori provides an operational advantage by ensuring capability prior to commitment, facilitating start up and remaining accountable through study close out.
