By leveraging relationships with leading neurology centers, Meridian provides greater access to leading investigators and special patient populations. Several of Meridian’s principal investigators are region-leading providers for neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.

This specialized expertise reinforces compliant trial conduct and long-term patient assessment. Meridian also maintains well-established patient databases that include sensitive and hard-to-recruit neurological cohorts. Active practice databases are particularly valuable for rare/orphan disease research programs and for reaching patients that may consider a clinical trial as a care option.
