Minneapolis Clinical Trials

Nucleus Network Minneapolis is conveniently located in the heart of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. We conduct FDA-approved clinical trials on behalf of drug and device manufacturers, academic and private physicians as well as other researchers across Minnesota.

We have been performing clinical studies since 2005, with the cooperative effort of our highly experienced staff, volunteers, and our pharmaceutical & academic partners. It takes the coordination of many people and organizations to safely and successfully navigate the clinical trial process and Nucleus Network is at the center of those efforts.

We are actively recruiting for new paid clinical trials, with new studies opening up all the time. Not all studies are listed on our website, so please call us at (651) 641-2900 to find out more about current and upcoming studies or register your interest here.

We perform mostly Phase 1 clinical trials, with a focus on healthy volunteer trials (participants with no medical conditions) and liver & kidney trials (participants with liver & kidney impairments). No matter your health status, you can register your interest and we will be in touch if there is a clinical trial that you might be able to participate in.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we currently only allow participants who live within 300 miles of our clinic.

We look forward to welcoming you at our clinic soon!
