Center Overview

Wetlin Research Associates, Inc. is a California based corporation founded by Bernard Michlin, MD, in 1998 with the sole purpose of providing quality research to the pharmaceutical industry, as well as, allowing patients to benefit from the no-cost, cutting-edge advances in pharmacological therapies. We provide; outpatient; clinical trials. To help meet our patients’ needs, we begin seeing patients at 7:00 A.M. and frequently hold office visits on Saturdays. Our research center is located in a multi-specialty private practice with more than adequate dedicated research facilities. Our most important goal has been to improve the quality of research performance and data collection, while bringing numerous investigators under one roof to provide a diversity of research potential and an increase in potential subject population for any given protocol. Since our inception, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide a 24-hour turnaround on regulatory documents, as well as, a decision on our ability to perform a given protocol within 2 days after being contacted by a pharmaceutical company. Our patient database allows us to perform a criteria specific search and provide an honest answer as to whether we feel we can meet the enrollment objectives or not. If I do not feel we can adequately meet the enrollment goals of a protocol, I will not accept the protocol. As we are an independent entity, we can use a central IRB.
