First and foremost, our thoughts are with you all during this unprecedented time.  The safety and wellbeing of everyone, especially our patients and staff, are of the utmost importance to us.  We are taking every precaution to ensure our operations and actions are in accordance with the recommendations of the government, state/local officials and medical professionals to keep you safe.


NRC Research Institute is currently operating with no changes to our office hours and continues to accept new patients.  Our commitment as a medical research facility is to remain open to ensure that the safety protocols and data integrity remain intact throughout this time. 


With that being said, we have implemented extra precautions to maintain a safe and sanitary environment: 

  • All staff and patients are asked to wear NRC provided masks in all public areas and during all visit procedures.

  • If/when possible, patient visits have been reduced or are done remotely.

  • All patients and/or guests are contacted the day prior to their visit for symptom and exposure assessment.  In addition, all staff conduct daily symptom and exposure assessments prior to beginning work.

  • All staff, patients and/or guests will have their temperature taken at check-in and must be < 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • For the safety of our staff and patients, we ask that patients and/or guests experiencing any symptoms of cold, flu or acute respiratory illness be symptom-free for at least 24 hours prior to attending any scheduled visits.

  • Any patient and/or guest observed to be exhibiting these above symptoms will have their appointment rescheduled.

  • For those patients that are approved to continue their visit, all feasible visit assessments will be conducted in a single room to help patients and staff reduce exposure to multiple contact areas

  • Once a patient exits the room, all areas and instruments are thoroughly wiped down and disinfected prior to next patient use.

  • As well, in an effort to comply with social distancing recommendations, all non-essential staff have been reassigned offsite.  Remaining essential staff have been reassigned to spread throughout the office.

  • For our Clinical Research Unit (CRU):

    • All patients have their own room.

    • Before and after each turnover, rooms and beds are thoroughly wiped down/sanitized.

    • CRU staff are scheduled to do routine cleanings/wipe downs every shift of all common areas.

    • 1 mask to be provided each day to patients.

    • No more than (2) patients should be in common area at a time, must be 6 feet apart.

    • Signs posted to remind everyone on proper hand-washing, etc.

Your contribution to science has extremely meaningful impact to those suffering from these disorders.

We are a dedicated clinical research and development facility located in Orange, California. Our mission is to obtain quality research data in order to advance safe and effective therapeutics to the marketplace. In the past 10 years, our foundation has been in central nervous system disorders and diseases and has recently expanded into other indications, such as rheumatology, endocrinology and chronic pain.  


Clinical research, or clinical trials, are research programs that test the effectiveness and safety of various interventions for people with a certain condition. They are meant to find new or improved methods of evaluating or treating a condition. 


Our team of highly trained board-certified physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, and experienced clinical research coordinators ensure that we obtain the best data possible for our sponsors through adherence to the standards of GCP and ICH guidelines.

We pride ourselves on making it possible for our patients to be active participants in their healthcare by improving their understanding of their health condition through the clinical trial process. Patients have the opportunity to shape future treatment options with a sense of altruism unparalleled with normal clinic experiences.  


NRC Research Institute has worked with the top globally recognized pharmaceutical and bio-tech companies on the development of both FDA-approved and investigational medications.
