About CCT Research

CCT Research Corporate office

We embed research studies in the comfort and convenience of patient communities. By providing easy access to care, we help patients suffering from debilitating diseases now, while bringing hope for a cure for future generations.

CCT was created to fundamentally change the way patient recruitment and retention occurs. By embedding research directly within senior living communities, we allow patients to participate in research studies without leaving the comfort of their own home. After we perfected our “formula”, we have expanded to enhance the patient experience with offering multiple therapeutic areas.

Our Core Values

  • We promote an environment of innovation and continuous improvement for our team and research staff
  • Fostering a safe, responsible and friendly experience for our patients
  • Delivering exceptional results for our clients

What we stand for

We stand for a wonderful patient experience. We aim to provide exceptional education to the outside community on research and provide an experience that is not intimidating because too many people do not yet know the potential impact and hope that a research study can have on their or a family member’s life. We also stand behind providing top quality data in a very efficient time frame. We are against compromising quality and the patient experience in any way.
