About The Vanguard Research Group

VRG is a CRO with an experienced site network, specializing in behavioral health research. We are a joint venture with Northwell Health, New York’s largest health care provider. Our mission is to connect real world treatment centers with the opportunity to participate in research. We feel it is important to test new treatments in settings where clients are routinely treated in order to advance the care of severe mental illness.

We work with sponsors and CROs to help them succeed in their clinical trials by utilizing a network of academic and community treatment centers with an active database of thousands of engaged clients. Our staff understands the institutions and their structures and how to successfully conduct trials in these settings. The sites are trained and ready to participate in future trials.  If you are a sponsor or CRO interested in learning more about working with us and the benefit of a partnership,

VRG staff have successfully managed behavioral health trials conducted at community mental health centers and academic centers across the United States. We support the centers we partner with in everything that a study requires; whether you have previous experience with research or not. Additionally, you get to connect to experts in the field and more. If you are interested in learning more about the benefit of a partnership with your center and VRG,

VRG manages a variety of studies on mental health in treatment centers across the US. Those studies may include a new way of receiving therapy (for example through an app on the phone), new medications or other treatment programs.
