    Alliance for Multispecialty Research

    Our History

    The Alliance for Multispecialty Research was founded in 1994 to serve as a hub for shared marketing, business development, and best practices for elite clinical research centers. Exclusive membership was determined by rigorous peer review, revenue and quality requirements, geographic location, and therapeutic expertise.

    In 2017, 15 AMR centers merged their businesses to form a single company. Two additional centers elected to remain independent but aligned operations and function seamlessly as AMR members. The new AMR now includes 17 locations across the continental United States, 126 investigators, and access to databases of over 657,344 patients. As one company, AMR now offers improved efficiencies with the same exceptional quality and industry professionals you trust.
