Mission: Our mission is to develop and share knowledge that improves the care of patients around the world through innovative clinical research.
From innovative study design and insightful analytics to proactive knowledge sharing, the DCRI is always discovering what’s next in clinical research to improve patient outcomes. Our faculty, who are practicing physicians, together with our experienced and knowledgeable operations teams, design and implement innovative clinical trials grounded in the realities of patient care. We expand the impact of clinical research beyond regulatory approval by designing trials that advance our fundamental understanding of health and disease and inform efforts to improve the quality of care. Our experience stretches from phase I to phase IV and beyond, encompassing post-approval analyses and health economics.
Our 2016-2017 annual report provides a deeper look into DCRI’s work over the past year.
Although best known for our pioneering research in cardiology, we lead groundbreaking clinical trials and studies in the areas of gastroenterology, infectious diseases, pediatrics, musculoskeletal, neurosciences, perioperative, and respiratory medicine. The breadth of our work is matched by the depth of our knowledge, which we disseminate through high-impact publications and global meetings. DCRI faculty and staff have authored more than 10,000 peer-reviewed publications and been cited in more than 400,000 scientific articles over the course of 20 years.
At the heart of our culture are our core values—integrity, excellence, respect, innovation, and teamwork—that help us define what it means to be successful, both as individuals and an organization. At the DCRI, we believe:
