WhatWe Do

ClinSearch is a multi-disciplinary clinical research site that brings many years of experience and leadership in the research community to the Chattanooga, Tennessee area. Our research site effectively combines strategic accelerated volunteer recruitment and retention with high-quality clinical trial conduct practices. Our approach is uncompromising – each study conducted at our site is carefully planned and executed according to protocol and regulations with superior quality.

ClinSearch was founded in 1990 and is led by Dr. Mark McKenzie, Medical Director.

At ClinSearch, we specialize in clinical research in a number of different areas including, but not limited to:

  • Women’s Studies
  • Gastroenterology
  • Dermatology
  • Pulmonology

Dr. McKenzie’s on-site commitment to the investigations conducted at ClinSearch, along with his dedicated research facility and the reasonable number of studies undertaken, result in a sharply focused attention by the principal investigator on every clinical trial that is completed.

Our executive leadership has built a research team recruited for their analytical skills as well as their genuine compassion and ability to relate to study volunteers. This group has performed admirably in community outreach events, educating our volunteers and community members, and performing health screening assessments to diverse community groups. Our staff works an expanded day to accommodate participant schedules and will often see patients on weekends or evenings to ensure success.

Our group of professionals works together in a team environment with all members respected for their contributions to study goals. Our staff is small enough to promote efficient communication, but large enough to build in redundancy for all critical functions within a trial. Our research staff receives GCP & OSHA training and routine IATA & CITI training.

We believe you will appreciate the technical competence and dedication of our team and enjoy the responsive interaction our team environment promotes.
