"Working with the CIM has made clinical trials an incredibly smooth process. The CIM has simplified both investigator-initiated studies and industry-sponsored trials. The CIM has been particularly helpful in budget preparation and negotiations, study coordination and implementation, study conduct, data collection and record keeping. The speed with which budgets can be prepared has also helped with the contracts process. The Centre itself and its infrastructure provide a welcoming environment for both investigators and study participants."

Claire M.A. LeBlanc, MD, FRCP, Pediatric Rheumatologist and Sport Medicine Physician

"The exemplary CIM personnel are a great help in carrying out my clinical studies. Space is more than adequate, their equipment is state-of-the-art, and they see subjects in an efficient manner with minimal waiting time for patients."

Maryam Oskoui, MD, M.Sc., FRCPC Pediatric Neurologist

"The CIM's turnkey services make it possible for me to conduct industry-sponsored pediatric clinical trials. They offer as much or as little support as needed for each project. They are professional, efficient, experienced, and a pleasure to work with. As I am a full-time clinician scientist, the CIM has been an incredible resource to facilitate these studies that are important to my vulnerable patient population. The new pediatric CIM facilities at the Glen make us a competitive centre to attract industry-sponsored clinical trials, and along with the outstanding personnel, make the experience for participants first-class."
