Welcome to Jacksonville Center for Clinical Research


Clinical trials move medicine forward. Sponsors, such as pharmaceutical companies, governments and foundations fund medical research. Patients who participate in clinical research receive many advantages including treatment at no cost, access to expertise and resources such as expensive tests. Research volunteers shape the future and can have fun while helping others and themselves.

 

As a premier clinical research organization, we have conducted more than 1,000 clinical trials over 20 years and have worldwide recognition for providing patients access to cutting edge medical research. If you have a medical issue and want a research solution, or if you are a healthy volunteer, come visit our center and learn more. One of our experts will be happy to evaluate you.

Andrea West

Andrea is a Clinical Research Coordinator at our University office and has been a VIP of the JCCR family for 14 years now. She obtained a bachelor’s degree in Zoology from the University of Florida and is an avid Florida Gators fan! She then went on to get her Master’s in Public Health at FIU.

Andrea loves to travel with Gerald, her husband of 17 years. “Traveling, pizza, cheese, and coffee, that’s all I need to survive” she says. Together they have traveled to Galapagos Islands, Barcelona, Paris, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Ecuador, many national parks, and British Columbia where she got unreasonably close to a mother grizzly bear and her cub. 

She has two adopted dogs from the humane society. Her favorite show is Outlander, and she hopes to read all 8 books in the series. She says “I love reading and hiking on vacation, maybe it’s time to take another trip!”

Lateshia Taylor

Lateshia Taylor is a research assistant at the JCCR university office and has been a member of our research family for ten years. She loves to travel and try new outdoor adventures with her son, Shumbae. And when she says adventures, she’s talking zip-lining, camping and river-rafting. Her favorite sport is football and she is a Jaguars fan, but as the mom of a busy six-year-old, she also appreciates quiet time reading and the occasional pampering pedicure or massage. 

While she tells us that she doesn’t really have a favorite food, she does warn us that she will NOT eat peas or beans. She hates peas and beans. 

Lateshia admits that her guilty pleasure is messy reality TV, but since she just moved into a new house, we doubt that she’ll have much time to indulge in that for a while. She will be occupied with decorating and arranging her new space – making a home sweet home.

Congratulations on your new adventure Lateshia!

Joy Viau

I do my part for the Encore Research community by doing what I can every day to make the Encore site family the best research network in the country. As chief financial officer, I manage the Encore treasury and provide support to all the “villagers” in our corporate community. 

I grew up in rural Virginia and married a sailor. After 17 moves in 30 years, we settled our family here in Jacksonville. I went to eight different universities during our many Navy duty stations and finally graduated from the University of North Florida. I have two beautiful daughters and a wonderful dance partner who loves to travel as much as I do. I also love dancing, creating paper art, reading, listening to music, and hiking anywhere. My favorite sports teams are the Jacksonville Suns, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Washington Redskins. I’ve rarely met a food I didn’t like.
