Quality Clinical Research

Dean Foundation researchers conduct studies on a variety of disciplines. Dean Foundation's focus on clinical research, combined with experience, ensures that each study is completed in a timely, professional, confidential and cost-effective manner. In addition, the quality of the data gathered meets the highest professional standards.

    • All clinical trial studies are conducted under the direction of Dean Foundation's experienced, research-oriented Physician Investigators.
    • Studies also use fully-accredited and professionally trained staff including a full-time study coordinator and Registered Nurses.

Dean Institutional Review Board (IRB)

Dean Foundation's own on-site Institutional Review Board (IRB), formed in July 1991, reviews the foundation's research studies.

Investigators submit protocol, informed consent and advertising two weeks prior to its two monthly meetings to allow the board sufficient time to review materials to ensure the protection of the rights of research subjects.

An approval from the IRB is generated within a day or two after the board approval contingencies are met. The IRB conducts future amendments to the protocol, consent and advertising on an expedited basis when possible.

More about the Dean IRB:

    • Its reviewed over 500 studies following the policies and procedures mandated by the Food and Drug Administration.
    • It successfully completed FDA audits in 1992, 1997 and 2003.
    • It continually reviews its own policies and procedures and changes to federal guidelines to ensure it has the most current information when conducting reviews.
    • It holds two regularly scheduled monthly meetings, but is flexible based on the needs of principal investigators and board members.
