Welcome to Westside 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 2,500 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.

Lateshia Taylor

Lateshia is a research assistant and lab technician at the Westside office and has been a member of our research family for 14 years (since 2005). 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 10-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 also admits that her guilty pleasure is messy reality TV.

COVID-19 Update

To our ENCORE Community,
 
ENCORE is taking the COVID-19 crisis seriously, in part by understanding that clinical trials will provide the only durable solution to this crisis and other afflictions facing our community and country.
 
All of our ENCORE sites are open for business for both patient and industry visits. We have added precautions to minimize the risk of virus transmission to patients and employees and to ensure that ongoing clinical trials are completed.
 
We have instituted more frequent and aggressive cleaning and infection control procedures. We also ask anyone with acute influenza-like symptoms or those who have been in close contact with individuals that have tested positive for COVID-19 to reschedule after following the federal guidelines for 14-day self-isolation. In taking sensible precautions, we hope our patients and industry partners will feel comfortable that our ongoing operations don’t put our community at risk…only benefit it.
 
Analysis of Clinicaltrials.gov shows there are nearly 80 clinical trials worldwide for investigational new treatments and vaccines in development. About 15 of those have been expanded to take place in the United States, of which, we aim to take part.
 
Sincerely,
Michael Koren, MD, FACC, FAPCR, CPI
Medical Director and Chief Executive Officer
