Shining a Light on Clinical Research

Lumos Clinical Research Center is a medical research facility, located in the Bay area, in close proximity to Good Samaritan Hospital, San Jose CA. We are devoted to conducting studies to test new medications developed by our Sponsors for better and safer ways of treating different medical and psychiatric conditions.

Your participation in clinical research at Lumos enables us to present very useful data to the pharmaceutical companies who then assess the safety and effectiveness of new treatments before submission to the FDA for approval. Without patient participation, no newer and safer drugs would be available to you or your doctor. The process of testing through clinical trials ensures that only effective and safe drugs are approved.

Why participate, or what’s in it for me, you ask?
If you are eligible to participate you will get a detailed assessment, including a physical examination, ECG and blood tests. You may have access to new, cutting edge medical treatments, not yet available to the general public. Your care is supervised and monitored at no cost to you or your insurance company. You are also compensated, at each visit, for your time and travel. Above all, you, become part of an important process in approving or disapproving potentially new medical treatments.
We are in this together!
Our mission is to be part of the process for developing new and safe medications for patients and families in our community. Our vision, with your help, is to be recognized as the best clinical research center in the Bay Area and we will do that with core values of respect and compassion for our volunteer participants and adherence to good clinical practices.

Participated in a Women’s Health study here that involved a short interview and blood sample. Everyone I interacted with was very nice and made the experience a good one. I get my blood drawn semi-regularly and thought the phlebotomist was super gentle and checked in throughout the process. Overall, I was in and out in 25 mins. Would recommend!

Dr. Maitra is a godsend to me. In a time when I was so confused and wanted an expert to advise Dr. Maitra helped me. She heard my concerns and took the time to assist me. With the pandemic situation, a couple of virtual meetings with her was all that was needed. She was very prompt in the follow-up & now I know I can let Dr. Maitra know with any concerns and feel safe she will address them to the best of her ability. - Sree
