Burke Pharmaceutical Research, located in Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas, has spent the past ten years growing from a small clinical trials unit into a unique research facility with an impressive record.  


Conference Room

Our 70˚ celsius freezer, along with all of the pharmaceutical grade refrigeration systems, is supported by emergency backup generators that have the capability to run the clinic for up to one month without outside power.  All drugs are kept under a double-lock system with selected staff access only.  This secure environment maintains the study site integrity.  Designed to meet the primary needs of a clinical trial unit, our in-house laboratory is ideal for performing phlebotomy procedures.  The convenient lab also accommodates our diagnostic and sterilization equipment.

Lab & Drug Storage

Our private conference room has all of the amenities monitors visiting our facility will need for a comfortable, functional workspace.  Wireless internet gives monitors access to study information online, while an internal telephone allows for personal communication with sponsors.  A spacious worktable offers plenty of room for reviewing study documents or consulting with research coordinators.  The space is also used for pre-study and initiation site visits. 

Infusion Room

Research patients requiring intravenous medication during clinical trials will rest comfortably in our infusion room equipped with clinical care recliners and cable television.  The private space is also used by research personnel to conduct physical assessments and electrocardiograms.  

Photo Imaging

With our on-site photography studio, we are fully equipped to participate in clinical trials requiring photo documentation.  We use a professional digital single-lens reflex camera and two studio lighting configurations to create superior-quality photographs.

Our experience in medical grade photography includes:

•Reflected Ultraviolet
• Stereo-tactic
• Macro
• Global
• Traditional Film






Our dedicated staff is proud that the company known for its “small town” atmosphere ranks consistently among the highest in the nation with its enrollment into clinical trials and patient retention rates.

Our singular goal is to conduct studies in a professional environment and to collect data in the meticulous manner deserving of the industry.  This passion for research and attention to detail has resulted in the development of a strong following of repeat business among pharmaceutical and biotechnical companies who know we produce top quality data that results in few queries.


Devoted exclusively to research, our 3,500 square foot facility adjoins a large dermatology practice with four medical providers that offers a database of well over 38,000 patients. Additionally, the area has a large network of family and specialty physicians that provide a steady referral base of patients, many from outlying rural areas.

Our research personnel promptly greets patients upon their arrival at our office and are available 24-hours a day to answer questions concerning ongoing studies.
