Stephens & Associates Opens a State-of-the-Art Phoenix Facility Focused on Skin Studies

Stephens & Associates, Inc., a contract research organization (CRO) dedicated to providing the most advanced, comprehensive clinical research services with the highest quality standards to skin science clients in dermatology, cosmetics, medical devices and personal care, announces the opening of its full service Phoenix, Arizona facility. Home to the Scottsdale Mayo Clinic and large teaching universities, Phoenix has a wealth of highly skilled research professionals to draw from to act as principal or sub-investigators. In addition, as the fifth largest U.S. metropolitan city, Phoenix has a diverse demographic base to populate the firm’s database of study participants.

“The company has taken a comprehensive approach to our ability to staff, populate and conduct clinical trials,” explains Thomas J. Stephens, Ph.D., founder and president. “We are building relationships with medical and aesthetic dermatologists, plastic surgeons, internists and podiatrists to help Stephens conduct world-class trials for our global clients.”

Phoenix Senior Director, Lawrence A. Rheins, Ph.D. adds, “Phoenix is very convenient for our clients, only a short plane trip from most Western U.S. cities. Our clients can easily come to the facility, observe a study, and return in one day — a huge advantage over travel to east coast CROs.”

The City of Phoenix and the Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC) welcomed Stephens & Associates and have been generous with their support and guidance, helping the team to be successful from the outset. “We look forward to partnering with them and with the medical, academic and local communities,” comments Dr. Stephens. “Phoenix is a win-win-win.”

The business and surrounding communities are invited to attend an Open House on December 14 to tour the state-of-the-art facility and experience Stephens’ advanced skin science technology. “The company made a significant investment in both biophysical skin instrumentation and digitized imaging equipment; we have instruments designed to evaluate skin changes in moisture content, amount of pigmentation, skin surface smoothness and deepness of lesions,” explains Dr. Rheins.

Stephens has an array of standard and customized digital photographic equipment, along with medical photographers to provide clients with robust, compelling product performance data. “We are excited to begin studies and hope many people here in the greater Phoenix area will agree to participate,” continued Dr. Rheins. “Of course, all participants who complete a study are compensated for their time and travel.”

To participate in a study, call toll free 1-833-530-7596, email [email protected], or apply online at www.sastudies.com.

To inquire about clinical trial services, please contact Dr. Lawrence Rheins, Phoenix Senior Director, at 480-682-0316 or [email protected].
