MassResearch has 25 years of expertise in developing and conducting protocols for major pharmaceutical and device companies, as well as assisting start-ups in the investigational and approval process.

Our first clinical trial studied the effect of hormones on circadian rhythms that modify obesity and diabetic patterns. This first study sparked a passion to investigate diabetes and its accompanying complications and controls. Over the years, we have conducted research for a variety of indications, with a primary focus on endocrinology.


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

Medical Device

Blood glucose meters, analytical and robustness testing, lancets, injectors, applications, wearables, transdermal delivery, and medication patches.

Medical Focus Groups

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

Research Experience

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 expectations for recruitment and data integrity. Although we have been through hundreds of sponsor audits we have only been audited by the FDA once with “no findings.”
