Neurology / Sleep Research

CTI has a long history of working in neurology including rare/orphan diseases, central nervous system (CNS) disorders, psychiatry, and sleep research.  We have conducted hundreds of studies in neurology indications with more than half of these being sleep research studies.  We've contributed to the development programs of 16 sleep focused drug approvals. Over decades of working in sleep research, we have developed a network of research trained, registered polysomnographic technicians.  Our facilities and our personnel are more than equipped to efficiently and expertly execute these types of trials.

In addition to our sleep trials, we have experience in the execution of studies evaluating neurological rare and orphan diseases, psychiatric indications, as well as indications specific to pain perception.  Our medical affairs team includes a board certified neurologist with experience as an investigator and medical monitor across diverse indications within this area.  We attend industry meetings and are members of several societies, including the National Sleep Foundation and the Alzheimer's Foundation of America's National Memory Screening Foundation.
