Charter Research

Advancing medicine for healthier lives.

Charter Research is a clinical research company with two locations in Lady Lake and Winter Park, Florida.  We conduct clinical trials in many areas of medicine.  We’re widely known and respected for our research in Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and osteoarthritis.


Our mission is to advance medicine for healthier lives, and our team is comprised of talented individuals with many years (or decades) of clinical research experience.  Prior to starting Charter Research, the company owners helped build and grow one of the nation’s largest clinical research centers and then oversaw operations of one of the world’s largest clinical trials site networks.  We value the people who participate in our studies and work diligently to take great care of them.  Our team members are kind, accommodating, and respectful.

New Medicines Start Here

Clinical research is where new, life-changing medicines begin. Every FDA-approved medicine you’ve taken (or provided to a loved one) started out in clinical research.

Our work is about discovering the future of medicine, and our research studies are on the forefront of science.  By joining a research study, you'll receive exceptional care and gain new medical insights at no cost to you.  You might possibly find relief, and your participation will help to advance new medical understandings.  Explore our open studies and call to see if you qualify.  Together, we can create a healthy future for people everywhere.
