CenExel Clinical Research Network is excited to announce our presence at the upcoming CNS Summit 2021 in Boston, Massachusetts on November 7-11, 2021. The mission of the CNS Summit is to have a positive impact on the success of clinical development programs as an ethical duty to the Central Nervous System (CNS) patients CNS members serve by developing new treatments.

CenExel is a clinical research network primarily focused on central nervous system research at the following Centers of Excellence: CenExel ACMR (Georgia), CenExel AMRI (New Jersey), CenExel CBH (Maryland), CenExel CIT (California) and CenExel RCA (Florida), each with renowned and respected Principal Investigators studying a variety of mental health conditions for adult and adolescent patients alike. We are looking forward to seeing our current clinical trial partners, meeting with potential new sponsors and CROs, and learning about new developments made by our industry peers.
