Insight Clinical Trials was established 12 years ago by Elisa Poggi, MSW/LSW. She saw a need for more treatment options for patients with neurological disorders and mental illnesses. Mark Stillman M.D. accepted the position as Principal Investigator at Insight Clinical Trials in 2020. Together they have created a welcoming, encouraging environment for patients and families to learn more about their diseases and what options are available, turning Insight Clinical Trials into one of the leading independent research institutes in Northeast Ohio.
