In 1992, we started the business under the name of Clinica Corporation on the campus of the Waltham Hospital (now Boston Children's Hospital). During our first ten years we concentrated on studying diabetes, focusing on pharmacokinetics, insulin and glucose meter trials As our protocols expanded to additional therapeutic areas, we changed our name to MassResearch, LLC, to better position our research mission. After 13 years on the hospital campus, we moved to our new location in 2005. Our business is focused on testing in these areas:


Phase I-IV, inpatient and outpatient, pharmacokinetic, clamp, most therapeutic areas and healthy patient studies

Medical Device

Blood glucose meters, insulin dose calculators, lancets, injectors, applications, wearables, transdermal delivery, med patches

Medical Focus

Packaging, package inserts, applications, opinion, taste, design, professional focus (MD, RN, Dietician, LD, Nutritionist, CDE, etc)

We have worked with most major pharmaceutical companies and CRO's. We also enjoy working with start-up pharma and medical device companies, helping them to develop and initiate their protocols. Our sponsor retention is impressive – over 80% of sponsors have worked with us for more than 20 years and we exceed sponsor expections for recruitment and data integrity. Although we have been through hundreds of sponsor audits we have only been audited by the FDA one time with "no findings". None of our Investigators has ever been barred from research.
