Partnering to Advance Healthcare

A Message From Dr. James Clark, Our Medical Director

Charlottesville Medical Research (CMR) has successfully completed over 450 Clinical Trials since 1991. During this time, I served my community as an internal medicine physician while also engaging in medical research as a clinical investigator. My desire has been to ensure that all patients receive the most effective therapies, with the fewest risks.

Clinical Research Opportunities in Charlottesville

Throughout the years, I have had the privilege to witness my clinical research endeavors at CMR facilitate FDA approval and marketplace availability of improved treatment options. In January 2016, I assumed the role of owner and Medical Director of The Charlottesville Medical Research Center, LLC.  My passion for advancing medicine and caring for patients will yield a greater impact, as I focus my energy towards promoting therapeutic advances that are obtained through clinical research.  I am honored to be working with a team of investigators and clinical coordinators that also share my passion for bringing patients more advanced treatments.
