The Woodstock Research Center has brought mental health clinical trials to Northern New England for over 20 years.  Studies offer participants unique opportunities to receive cutting edge treatments and be among the first to benefit from recent scientific progress. Participants can expect the highest quality compassion, care, and attention that is not available in a traditional medical practice.  Our commitment is to improve the lives of our patients through accurate diagnosis, patient education, and treatment of their disease. Studies are carefully designed to make the health and safety of every participant a top priority.  All of the center’s trials are conducted under the supervision of board certified psychiatrists and are subject to FDA monitoring and approval.
