Who We Are

Clinical Trials Center of Middle Tennessee was established in 2019 by Alex Slandzicki, M.D. and Aaron Milstone, M.D., each of whom has over 20 years of clinical trials experience. They had a vision of creating a physician-led research center focused on performing to the highest standards with excellence in leadership, experience, and a high level of Investigator involvement.

Clinical Trials Center of Middle Tennessee works with sponsors and organizations to help manage studies that explore new treatment options for various disease states. We primarily focus on pulmonary and COVID-19 clinical trials; however, we are structured to manage studies in a variety of other medical areas.
