Community Clinical Research Center (CCRC) has been a top enroller in several trials over the last three years. Their mission is to offer clinical trials to area residents that might not otherwise have the chance to participate. Patients benefit through research by gaining access to new treatments at no cost to them before they are widely available. Also, research patients receive top quality medical care and close monitoring by board certified physicians. Many times, patients are compensated for time and travel.

"Research is such an important part of what we do," Jetty said. "Through this trial, patients here in Anderson and surrounding areas had access to this cutting edge medication. Not only were they able to benefit their own health, but they have also helped others with their contribution to medical research."

CCRC participates in clinical trials that have been offered at Duke University, Cleveland Clinic and the Mayo Clinic. Recently Community Clinical Research Center has taken part in studies with Oxford University, Harvard and Brigham and Woman’s Hospital.
