The Founder

The investigators at MedVadis Research make sure that the subjects qualify for the studies and that they are otherwise healthy. They take the medical history and perform the physical examinations. They review the results of blood and urine testing as well as of other procedures, such as ECG and spirometry, and assess adverse-event occurrences. The investigators at MedVadis Research Corporation have in excess of 30 years of experience in conducting clinical-trial research:

He is board certified in neurology by the Royal Netherlands Medical Association. Dr. Spierings is a Clinical Professor of Neurology and Craniofacial Pain at Tufts University and the DIrector of the Headache & Face Pain Program at Tufts Medical Center in Boston. He has been involved in clinical-trial research since 1980 and has conducted close to 300 trials. He has published more than 250 research and review articles and 12 books.

The coordinators at MedVadis Research conduct the studies per protocol in close collaboration with the investigators. They provide the subjects with the Informed Consent Form for careful reading and answer questions that may arise. The coordinators obtain the information required by the study and collect blood and urine samples for analysis. They dispense medication, track its usage, and record any untoward experiences. The coordinators at MedVadis Research have in excess of 10 years of experience in conducting clinical-trial research:
