Pennington Biomedical provides its researchers with state-of-the-art core services designed to improve efficiency, timeliness and precision of vital technical procedures needed across research boundaries. Core services are divided into three areas: clinical, basic, and population science.

Recruiting Core


The goal of this core is to provide recruitment services for clinical trials to accelerate participant accrual rates.

Recruitment services for clinical trials and other human research studies conducted at Pennington Biomedical are coordinated by the Recruitment Core, directed by Brandi Bourgeois. The core manages all outreach and marketing activities for human research studies such as the design and placement of advertisement, community events and strategic partnerships designed to connect potential study participants with an ongoing array of clinical trials and research studies.  The core screens all interested participants to determine study eligibility.
