Norton Research Institute

Norton Healthcare is uniquely positioned to combine the advantages of a private hospital system and research opportunities more typically found in an academic setting.

Following a “privademic” model, our system offers researchers the clinical expertise, advanced technologies and state-of-the-art facilities of a private, not-for-profit health care system, paired with robust research support resources to conduct studies ranging from bench to bedside.

Norton Research Institute includes more than 200 clinical research professionals providing support for studies across the full spectrum of adult specialty health care. Our portfolio of more than 750 active studies includes translational research, investigational device studies, health outcome studies, biorepository and bench lab research, data collection, and Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3 clinical trials.

Researcher Support

Norton Research Institute provides full-service research support, including Medicare coverage analysis, budgeting, contracting, regulatory support, compliance, data request review and education. The level of support provided will depend on the type of study and whether the researcher is a research partner or employed by Norton Healthcare. Norton Research Institute helps with all aspects of a study proposal. Our team supports research from idea conception and startup to implementation and publication.
