The Difference? Partnership

Best Practices in Online Publishing…

Online academic publishing is a new world. Publishers and conference companies need guidance to stay out of the fray caused by the corruption that has plagued this arena since it began. We work with your team to build or re-build your reputation, and to transform your operations and even your infrastructure.

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?

For Online Academic Publishers and Conference Enterprises:

We offer best practices consulting for publishers and conference companies to help them become the best they can be. Many online academic publishing and conference companies are suffering (simply by association), as a result of the fraud, turf-grabbing, and other afflictions of the Open Access sector. Our services include public relations campaigns to build or re-build your reputation (shifting your location in the search engines), in order to have you shine in the public eye! If infrastructural aid is called for, we’ll serve you with top-shelf management and operations consulting.

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 Award

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. He is collaborating on the project, “Tailoring Patient Options for Medication Adherence Action Plans in Community Pharmacies,”with the Massachusetts Pharmacists Association 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 n.rickles@neu.edu, or Peaches Udoma at info@Pro-CureHD.com.
