We are very excited to announce the merge of Columbia Research Group, Inc. and Oregon Clinical Research, Inc. These two successful companies have joined forces, retaining the name and location of Columbia Research Group, Inc. This merge combines over 20 years of experience conducting clinical trials for pharmaceutical companies. Our ability to improve patients’ quality of life through research has now doubled.
Columbia Research Group, Inc. was formed in 2009 by former Covance and Radiant Research employees. Cyndi Cunningham, a Certified Research Professional, along with Dr. Keith Klatt, welcomed this merge with Terri Eichorn in April 2015. Terri founded Oregon Clinical Research, Inc. in 1995. Working with Dr. Michael Azorr and other experienced investigators, she has conducted well over 100 clinical trials in diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, gout and metabolic disorders.
Both Terri and Cyndi started their pharmaceutical research careers in 1987 at NorthWest Research Associates. In 1994, they went their separate ways, continuing in the field of clinical research. Now, after 20 years, they are back together serving the Portland Metro area with their combined resources and demonstrated ability to conduct quality clinical trials.
