Welcome to Fleming Island Center for Clinical Research


Clinical trials move medicine forward. Sponsors, such as pharmaceutical companies, governments and foundations fund medical research. Patients who participate in clinical research receive many advantages including treatment at no cost, access to expertise and resources such as expensive tests. Research volunteers shape the future and can have fun while helping others and themselves.

 

As a premier clinical research organization, we have conducted more than 1,000 clinical trials over 20 years and have worldwide recognition for providing patients access to cutting edge medical research. If you have a medical issue and want a research solution, or if you are a healthy volunteer, come visit our center and learn more. One of our experts will be happy to evaluate you.

Overactive Bladder

Help us find the right treatment for people with OAB

Different age groups react in different ways to medications. So it's important to find out what medications work best for who and why. For example, the PILLAR clinical study will look at how a medication approved to treat overactive bladder (OAB) sypmptoms affects people with OAB who are greater or equal to 65 years old. Study-related medications will be provided free of charge. Contact our understanding study team today for a confidential, no-obligation chat.

Cindy Buda

"I do my part by managing the Fleming Island Office of Encore Research." On a daily basis I work as a Research Nurse Manager of our Fleming Island site supporting the Physician Investigators and staff in conducting clinical trials being carried out in our office. I am an original "Cheese Head" born in Green Bay Wisconsin and transplanted to Central Florida at the age of 10. I moved to Jacksonville for college and made Jacksonville my home. My greatest accomplishment is my four children. I enjoy family, cycling, travel and fishing.

Lisa Moore

Do you know Lisa Moore at Fleming Island Center for Clinical Research?  She has been a member of our research family for fourteen years, and surprisingly in addition to being an accomplished research coordinator, she is a home project expert.  She can often be seen gardening and renovating her old house! 

Lisa is the mother of two children and a French bulldog mix. She enjoys health and fitness, and is currently a CrossFit devotee who also likes to compete in 5k runs.  This allows her to burn off her favorite foods which include cheese fondue with veggies and Renna’s pizza.

During those rare, quieter moments, you might find her at home baking, crafting or crocheting with her dog Sparkles by her side. 

Karen Schuran

“I LOVE to shop!  I would shop all the time if I could!” says Karen Schuran, who earns her shopping money by being the Research Assistant and Lab Processor at Fleming Island Center for Clinical Research. Karen has been a member of our research family for 10 years and continues to be a valuable asset to the company.
She and her husband are celebrating their 25th Anniversary of marriage this month. They have two children, a daughter and a son. Karen is also “Grandma” to a cute, fuzzy bunny named Snoopy.
Karen’s favorite sport is football, which she has been learning more about so she can keep up with the men in the house. She also likes to watch game shows like Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy, but Karen admits her real guilty pleasure is horror movies. “I absolutely LOVE horror movies, the scarier the better!”
