Clinical Research

 
The development of NeuroComp's systems has been funded through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program from the National Institutes of Health. The stated objectives of this program are: using small businesses to stimulate technological innovation, strengthening the role of small business in meeting Federal research or research and development (R/R&D) needs, increasing private sector commercialization of innovations developed through Federal SBIR R/R&D, increasing small business participation in Federal R/R&D, and fostering and encouraging participation by socially and economically disadvantaged small business concerns and women-owned business concerns in the SBIR program.

NeuroComp is committed to upholding these objectives by making all of our systems and services readily available to all federally funded, academic research projects at a significantly discounted rate. Specifically, NeuroComp offers targeted services to accommodate the specific project requirements for single-site or multi-site academic research implementation. As with our services for clinical trials, our objective is to provide the most advanced methods for direct Electronic Data Capture (dEDCTM) of a wide range of neurocognitive, behavioral, and psychiatric assessments, at the point of patient contact. Unlike the pharmaceutical industry, however, academic research projects may not require outside involvement in associated trial management and data processing services. As such, NeuroComp provides the data acquisition systems, training, and the networked database infrastructure to pool data across the participating sites. The associated principal investigators of the project may then manage the data flow and analyses locally, in accord with project requirements.
