Injury Care Research and Family Care Research are dedicated research clinics located in the fastest growing city in the Northwest, Boise, Idaho.
Our mission is to conduct safe and effective clinical trials to advance development of new medications. We pride ourselves in rapid start-up and superior patient care.
Offering a Chance to Participate in Groundbreaking Clinical and Medical Research
In 2008, Dr. Richard Radnovich knew that by offering patients of Injury Care Medical Center the chance to participate in groundbreaking clinical and medical research he would enhance their level of care while developing new therapies that could also lead to helping his entire medical practice and the field of study. He reached out to Jill Heinz, an experienced clinical researcher, and Injury Care Research was founded. In 2018 Injury Care Research saw a need to expand into other therapeutic areas that could also help their patients who are interested in research outside of pain research. Family Care Research was formed and a new central location for this new clinic was built.
Our team brings together a proven staff with training in GCP, ICH and FDA regulations. Behind this training is a genuine desire to cure disease, minimize and alleviate patient suffering and improve quality of life. Our experienced staff, coupled with a strong leadership team, helps secure our future in the industry while ensuring our patients receive the highest level of care and service.
