Partnership with ActivMed Practices & Research, LLC
In 2016 New England Neurological Associates, PC partnered with ActivMed Practices & Research, LLC to offer cutting-edge research for people experiencing memory loss. With more of our aging community being diagnosed with diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and with no cure, there is a growing need to develop better medical treatments. This collaboration dedicated to research, has strengthened our ability to work together towards finding preventative and breakthrough treatments for neurological conditions.
Clinical research studies are important for discovering new ways to detect, diagnose, and treat diseases. Volunteers receive diagnostic testing and careful evaluation by a board-certified medical doctor. Many volunteers find that the high level of care they receive by participating in medical studies, allows them to have a better understanding of their medical condition and access to potential treatment options. Volunteers receive compensation for time and travel, and no insurance is needed. Participation is always voluntary, and participants can choose to withdraw from a study at any time. Every medical study has different requirements, procedures, risks and benefits.
ActivMed Practices & Research, LLC is a network of clinical research sites, with locations in Lawrence, Methuen, & Beverly, MA, and Portsmouth, NH. ActivMed has conducted over 800 clinical trials and has been an industry leader since 1994. ActivMed currently has an office within New England Neurological Associates office in Lawrence, located at 354 Merrimack Street, Building C, and will also see patients in the Lowell, MA office.
Each clinical trial is overseen by a physician, known as the Principal Investigator. These physicians are passionate about participating in research trials to better meet the needs of the community. Physicians can also be involved in a study as a sub-investigator or an assessment rater.
