Who We Are
FOMAT Medical Research, headquartered in Oxnard, California, is an Integrated Research Organization (IRO) focused on innovating healthcare with our high-quality services. With over 10 years of experience in participating in Phase 1 through Phase 4 clinical trials in a wide variety of therapeutic areas, we rely on a highly experienced clinical research team with the professional expertise necessary to assist Sponsors and Contract Research Organizations (CROs) with reaching their project goals quickly and effectively.
Our sites are pre-qualified to ensure their performance will exceed expectations as quickly and effectively as possible. As soon as they enter our network, our sites abide by internationally recognized Good Clinical Practices (GCP) to ensure clinical trials are conducted ethically and effectively. At FOMAT Medical Research, we facilitate every stage of the clinical trial process and provide high-quality services and solutions for sponsors, CROs, and sites.
Our mission is to diversify clinical trials and help bring innovations in healthcare to underrepresented populations (while ensuring that Good Clinical Practice standards and ethics are upheld). Contributing high-quality data allows the scientific community to pursue and create better treatments for various health conditions.
To Patients and Volunteers: We are committed to providing a safe and hospitable environment (while upholding good ethical standards) as we strive to improve healthcare treatment outcomes for you and future patients.
To Sponsors and CROs: We are committed to upholding excellence and high-quality management in the conduction of our clinical trials. One of our aims is to help you diversify clinical trial data.
