Coastal Carolina Research Center (CCRC) is a private, locally-owned medical research facility located in Charleston, SC. CCRC is a “dedicated” medical research facility which means we are totally focused on conducting clinical trials on behalf of pharmaceutical companies. We provide access for thousands of Charleston Lowcountry citizens who are interested in volunteering and participating in clinical trials and research studies that focus on primarily “outpatient” studies in multiple therapeutic areas and diseases.
Coastal Carolina Research Center's office is located in Mt. Pleasant at the foot of 526 and is easily accessible for people who reside in the entire Charleston metro area.
