Marin Endocrine Research, under the co-direction of Drs Richard Bernstein and Dr Linda Gaudiani has been actively engaged in clinical research since 1988. We have conducted studies for all of the major pharmaceutical companies including Eli Lilly, Merck, Pfizer, Sanofi-Aventis , Wyeth-Ayerst, Berlex, King, GSK and others.
Marin Endocrine Research has access to both central and local IRB's as well as the University of California, San Francisco Committee on Human Research.
Our 3,500 sq ft research facility includes secure temperature-controlled storage for both refrigerated and frozen specimens as well as secure study medication and supply closets. In 2006 we upgraded our bone densitometer to a new Lunar Prodigy Bone Densitometer with the full software options including lateral vertebral fracture assessment and body mass composition.
Our staff includes our two board certified endocrinologists, an RN/ bone density technician and our research manager who has 20 years of experience with us. We also have a research coordinator/financial staff analyst and three other clinical coordinators, and medical assistant/phlebotomist as well as receptionists.
