IMIC Inc. Clinical Research began in 2009 as a dedicated research clinic in cooperation with 2 physicians.  Now we work with 9 physicians and are recruiting from a large population in Miami-Dade county – Larger Miami – around 2.6 million people. Now after contracting more physicians our Principal Investigators’ practices have active database of over 37,000 patients.  The research department has access to electronic searchable databases by billed diagnoses, so we are able to run searches for specific patient populations. We also maintain a research patient database of patients expressed a wish to participate or former participants in clinical trials in numerous diagnoses of around 2100 subjects. We have participated in more than 104 studies phases 1 to 4.

We have easy access to outside services as DEXA, Echocardiograms, CT, HVPG, PET-CT, MRI and GI procedures such as liver biopsy, colonoscopy or upper endoscopy.  Our site uses only Central IRBs and there are no other committees that need to approve any studyWe are proud of very fast turnaround of regulatory documents and contracts of 1-2 weeks.
