Heartland Research Associates was started in 1991 by physicians Dr. Terry Poling, Dr. Terry Klein, and Dr. Thomas Klein, in their family practice in Wichita, Kansas. Their first research study was a sinusitis trial. The trial proved to be beneficial to their patients care. The decision was made to become investigators in another study, a flu treatment study. These first studies spurred the physician’s excitement further in research; they saw direct results benefiting patients and the patients enjoyed being a part of the research process.
Part of The Alliance for Multispecialty Research (AMR) network, Heartland Research Associates is now operating under the AMR banner. AMR was founded in 1994 to serve as a hub for shared marketing, business development, and best practices for elite clinical research centers. Exclusive membership is determined by rigorous peer review, revenue and quality requirements, geographic location, and therapeutic expertise.
In 2017, 15 AMR centers merged their businesses to form a single company. AMR now includes 32 locations across the continental United States, 126 investigators, and access to databases of over 657,344 patients. As one company, AMR now offers improved efficiencies with the same exceptional quality and industry professionals you trust.
