Conducting Clinical Trials Since 1984
Velocity Clinical Research, Salt Lake City, was founded in 1984 by Mr. Werner Huck as Advanced Clinical Research, the first community based clinical research center in Idaho and Utah. Mr. Huck was an early advocate of community -based outpatient studies. An initial model of embedding research staff in local practices evolved to stand alone research facilities. Mr. Huck and his research team participated in a large number of antibiotic trials from the 1980s until the early 2000s, addressing many unmet needs in infectious disease indications. This experience led to development of significant expertise in conduction of vaccine studies which remains a key therapeutic focus.
Over the years, Velocity Salt Lake City has expanded their clinical research expertise into Dermatology, Gastroenterology, Cardiology, Women’s Health and a variety of Family Medicine indications. By working collaboratively and developing strong relationships with area physicians and patients, this site has a broad network of study participants ranging from pediatric to geriatric demographics. In addition, this site also has access to Samoan and Latinx populations.
Located just south of Salt Lake City this site serves the greater Jordan Valley area. It is within walking distance from Jordan Valley Medical Center and has ample parking for study volunteers. Several hub sites are available as well. This main location has capabilities for overnight stays and extended day visits.
The Velocity Salt Lake City team is committed to being a resource for study volunteers, to providing the highest quality of patient care with compassion and kindness and to advancing medicine though research. By becoming part of the Velocity Clinical Research organization in 2019, they added new efficiencies and integration to their already comprehensive approaches to conducting clinical trials.
