Welcome to SEC Clinical Research

SEC Clinical Research performs sponsored clinical research at our two sites in lower Alabama, located in Andalusia and Dothan. Our research activities started as a component of SEC Lung, an Andalusia based medical practice limited to lung diseases. As the research studies expanded beyond respiratory disease, and with the addition of a free-standing clinical research office in Dothan, SEC Clinical Research LLC was established as a stand-alone entity devoted to clinical research.

At SEC Clinical Research, our central mission is:

The performance of clinical research in a manner that always provides care and respect for our research volunteers.

At SEC Clinical Research, we believe that well-established safety, ethical and regulatory standards serve to form a blueprint we follow in order to meet our central mission stated above. Our company culture at SEC Clinical Research has two central elements: First, we all embrace the highly regulated nature of the clinical research industry as necessary and appropriate for insuring that our research subjects participate safely, and that our Sponsors are provided with high quality data capable of withstanding regulatory scrutiny. Second, the leadership at SEC Clinical Research has created an environment in which mistakes and errors are minimized by constructively reviewing the few that do occur. Processes are continually perfected, and working conditions optimized, so that all of us at SEC Clinical Research can work at the highest standards possible.

This site has been developed for two different audiences: (1) potential research volunteers, and (2) research sponsors. If you are a possible research volunteer, or just want to learn more about clinical research, we think that the pages found by clicking on menu buttons Volunteers would be your best starting point. Please go to Clinical Studies to see specific studies underway, and which ones are still seeking volunteers.

If you are a Sponsor representative, you probably want to start with the menu buttons About and Sites.
