What services do you offer? Meridian Clinical Research partners with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to research new drugs, medical devices, and tests that could improve human health and wellbeing.
Meridian conducts Phase 1-4 clinical trials at investigative sites nationwide, including our dedicated research center in Sioux City. Meridian supports research in numerous therapeutic areas, and specializes in high-volume vaccine trials.
Almost anyone, regardless of age or background, can join a clinical trial. Beyond helping to advance medicine, participants can often get care from a local doctor at no cost and get paid for participating (amounts differ for each study). Health insurance is usually not needed to join, and Meridian studies seldom require overnight stays.
How many years has your business been a Chamber member? We joined the Chamber in July 2020, so just over a year. Meridian was founded in Omaha, NE, in 1999, where the company is still headquartered.
What is the best part about being a Chamber member? We enjoy learning about the other businesses in the Chamber and being able to introduce our company to others!
What is a fun or surprising fact about your company? We recently reached a large milestone in the study of various COVID-19 vaccines – we have enrolled over 8,000 patients in studies nationwide, including hundreds in the Siouxland area.
We are so thankful for the clinical research heroes who have joined a COVID-19 vaccine study at Meridian, and for our employees who work tirelessly to ensure these vaccines are thoroughly tested.
