“Valuable research is the pathway through which medicine advances and human nature prospers.”
-Steven H. Dayan, M.D., F.A.C.S. (Founder)
We believe that research is essential to the advancement of knowledge and science. While concentrating on aesthetic medicine, plastic surgery and dermatology, we at DeNova Research understand that beauty goes beyond physical appearance and is deeply impacted by patient self-esteem. In addition to our ongoing personal research into this complex relationship between physical enhancement and health outcomes, DeNova recognizes the most critical component to clinical research- the patient. That’s why at DeNova, our relationships with our patients are of utmost importance and we adhere to strong ethical principles and conform to Good Clinical Practices (GCP).
DeNova Research goes beyond the clinic to fully integrate patient experience, clinical research and market awareness. Our unique approach to research is evident in every aspect of our work.
1. Fostering Patient Relationships
The staff at DeNova Research prides itself in our strong relationships with our patients. By its nature, clinical research tries to separate from the personal in order to remain objective. Patients become subjects. Lives become numbers. But at DeNova, our clinical research professionals incorporate the human element back into research. We go to great lengths to ensure that patients are comfortable with the role within a clinical study, taking time to answer questions and address concerns. Developing a deeper bond with our patients calms the fears that can sometime be associated with clinical research and ensures that our patients feel comfortable. In turn, this fosters a reciprocal relationship where our patients return for their visits within window and complete to study duration.
2. Ensuring Quality Data
DeNova Research understands the need for quality, clean, accurate data. Our clinical research professionals perform a three-step quality assurance review prior to entry into the CRF or eCRF. Our aim is to facilitate an easy, comfortable sponsor monitor visit. DeNova Research’s investigators and clinical research staff take great pride in the quality of data we collect.
3. Going Beyond the Clinic
At DeNova, we transcend the idea of a traditional clinical research site. Whether new protocol development or market knowledge, DeNova Research goes beyond the patient clinic room to address your needs at every phase of product development.
In addition to physician exposure and teaching opportunities, our internal marketing company, IF Marketing, is able to offer customized, packaged marketing solutions to help reach both future physicians and patients. Together, DeNova Research, the Chicago Center for Facial Plastic Surgery and IF Marketing offer a unique combination to garner science behind your product, exposure of your product to physicians and patients and the knowledge of the market to address all aspects of product development.
