  • Non-Drug Studies

    New Non-Drug Study Opportunities Now Available Through Prism Research!


    Prism Research is proud to announce that we are now recruiting for non-drug studies!  You or someone you know might be qualified to participate in these studies.


    What are Non-Drug Studies?

    Medical devices like auto-injection pens, inhalers, and breast pumps must go through testing before they can be made available to the public.  In Non-Drug Studies, participants will simulate use of a medical device and provide feedback to how easy it was to use the device.  Just like drug-studies, participants receive financial compensation for their time


    Who can participate in Non-Drug Studies?

    Anyone who meets the qualifications for a specific study can participate and there will be many future opportunities.  Right now, we are specifically looking for the following people for multiple studies throughout the spring and summer:


    • People diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis
    • Caregivers for people with Rheumatoid Arthritis


    Email a recuriter or call 651-289-2096 for more info!

  • Diagnosed with Liver Impairment?

    Prism Research has upcoming studies for individuals diagnosed with liver impairment.  These studies will help determine how an investigational drug is broken down and removed from the body in volunteers with various degrees of liver impairment when compared to volunteers with normal liver function.


    If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with liver impairment and are interested in being considered for these studies, please contact Dayna at 651-724-5047 or register with our database and we will call you. Financial compensation is provided for study participation time.

Where hope, science & understanding meet.

From the aspirin on the shelves of your local drugstore, to the insulin prescribed by a doctor, to the pacemaker keeping someone’s heart on track – all have been subject to clinical trials, and integral part of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval process.

A critical step in an important process

Drugs and medical devices undergo years of laboratory testing before they reach the clinical trial phase. Researchers must acquire approval from the FDA for approval to continue research and testing in humans. Clinical trials are essential to measure the efficacy and safety of drugs before they are available for widespread use.

Changing lives, every day.

The impact of clinical trials are seen in our everyday lives, in the confidence with which we can take over-the-counter drugs – or in the life-saving benefits of a breakthrough medication for a victim of Leukemia.

Public Health and Safety

Prior to the development of the FDA’s rigorous and highly regulated method, consumers had to rely upon the anecdotal observation of physicians or spurious claims of pharmacists. In 1906, in order to protect public health and safety, the fledgling FDA passed the first regulatory drug act – the Pure Food and Drug Act.

In 1938, the enactment of the U.S. Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act subjected new drugs to pre-market safety evaluation for the first time, thus enabling FDA regulators to review both pre-clinical and clinical test results, giving them the authority to block the marketing of a new drug formally or delay it by requiring additional data.

Alongside the evolving standards of drug regulations, closer regulation of the clinical trial process. The resulting process today is designed to protect the safety of study participants, promote the development of lifesaving drugs, and keep public health and safety at the center of medical advancement. In the century since the first drug act, the research and medical community in cooperation with the FDA, have developed the foremost institutional authority for conducting and evaluating controlled clinical drug trials.

Doing the right thing

Know that you’ve done your part to help make important medications available to those who need them. If you have a friend or family member who relies on a medication to treat a chronic disease or illness, they have benefited from the work of a clinical trial, and a volunteer like you who gave their time and effort to aid in the approval process.

Fair compensation for your time

You’ll be compensated based on the time you spend as a study participant.

Medical exam & monitoring

As a study participant, you’ll likely receive a full medical examination and testing for a variety of conditions. In some cases volunteers might have access to treatments or medicines before they are available to the general population.

Changing lives, advancing science, furthering the reach of medicine.

Prism Clinical Research provides, FDA approved, investigational pharmaceutical and medical device testing services on behalf of drug and device manufacturers, academic and private physicians as well as other researchers across Minnesota.

We have been conducting Phase I clinical trials since 2005, helping many important drugs reach FDA approval.

Whether you are here because you are interested in participating in a clinical trial, or you’re searching for a trusted partner to conduct a study on your behalf, our hope is that you find the information you need and the confidence to take the next step. 

With your help, we can make a difference.
