Patricia Larrabee, NP

Chief Executive Officer

Pat founded Rochester Clinical Research in 1994 to provide residents of the Greater Rochester area with access to research studies. She has been a Sub-Investigator in over 600 clinical trials over 30 years, building on her clinical experience as a researcher and lecturer on high blood pressure, and her work with local physicians in managed care settings. Pat’s limitless energy, compassion and attention to detail have accounted for much of RCR’s success.

Rochester Clinical Research

Since opening in 1994, Rochester Clinical Research has conducted more than 650 clinical trials, with more than 200 partners. We have worked with virtually all CROs, IRBs, central labs and central patient recruitment vendors. Whatever technology is chosen for electronic data capture, interactive voice response, electronic medical records or e-diaries, the chances are we have worked with it before. We have more than 32,000 volunteers in our patient database.

Rochester Clinical Research is a preferred clinical research site for so many partners because we know what we’re doing and we do what we say. We are fast, accurate and easygoing. And we never stop improving our performance, processes and systems. With a “culture of quality” our company vision is that of quality care to our patients, quality data to our sponsors, and a quality work environment.

We are centrally located in the middle of a five county area, right off a major highway. This provides easy access for both our volunteer and partners. Our clinical trial partners have found that we fill trials on schedule and retain a very high proportion of volunteers throughout the trials. And that our research discipline and medical care are impeccable.

What began with just 3 employees and 2 therapeutic indications in a 1,500 sq. ft. space has grown to nearly 30 employees, over 60 different therapeutic indications and a 10,000 sq. ft. facility. The key to this growth has been in being at the forefront of industry trends in research and in technology.

Everyone here has been awesome and I hate for my study to end! They made me feel comfortable and I feel that I have made new friends.
