We bring more than three decades of experience in scientific and academic best practices consulting in development, grants and publications, writing and editing.
Our Approach… We’re all about you.
For health and life sciences researchers, we empower and develop you by focusing on the fundamentals of solid empirical study design, impeccable and persuasive writing, collaboration, and our clients’ specific career objectives. We connect Health and Life Sciences Researchers and Research Groups to collaborate effectively.
The Difference? Partnership
Best Practices in grant submission and study conduct…Getting funded is harder than ever. For investigators of all levels, we develop you as a researcher rather than executing the research. That’s what a CRO is for. As part of your team, we will guide you through the production of world-class grants, manuscripts, and collaborations. The product of our partnership is your own evolution as a researcher. We will help to make you the best researcher you can be. Health and Life Sciences Researchers and Research Groups look for highly-skilled researchers with whom to collaborate. We connect you with other researchers and stay involved to make sure the collaboration is successful.
Services: What do we actually do?
Health and Life Sciences Researchers and Research Groups:We offer interactive support and training to researchers and research group initiatives of all levels, providing support for research grant preparation, manuscript, and protocol preparation, collaborations, and beyond. We offer assistance with writing, reviewing, editing, study design, and data analysis plans. We train you in grant submission project management, as well as in how to be a successful collaborator and Principal Investigator (PI). We even help new and early stage investigators to become independent. And we do it all with the goal of empowering researchers to become research leaders. Being a successful researcher is not only about what’s on the page, it’s also about you.

Congrats! PCORI Awards
Nathaniel M. Rickles, Pharm.D., Ph.D., BCPP was recently selected for a PCORI Pipeline to Proposal Award to help build the community and capacity necessary to later develop a patient-centered comparative effectiveness research project across New England. From the P2P award, he went on to receive both Tier II and Tier III funding from PCORI, to complete his patient-centered research on antidepressant adherence. He is collaborating on the project, “Tailoring Patient Options for Medication Adherence Action Plans in Community Pharmacies,” with several stakeholders, including NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), Walgreen’s, Harvard-Pilgrim, the Massachusetts Pharmacists Association, people with lived experience, and Pro-Cure Health Design. The long-term objective is to determine the value of community pharmacists tailoring adherence interventions options, over the current standardized intervention approach. Dr. Rickles sees this as, “only the beginning of what we hope to be a national model for engaging community pharmacies in the critical work of improving patient comfort with their medications.” For more information, please contact Dr. Rickles at email@example.com, or Peaches Udoma at info@Pro-CureHD.com.
