Visit The Site’s Website

The NCCR Crystal River site is located along Central Florida’s Gulf Coast in scenic Crystal River, north of Tampa Florida. This fully dedicated research site conducts outpatient studies with multi-specialty physicians in the Citrus County area. The NCCR Crystal River Office opened its doors in 2007 with a panel of experienced physician investigators from the Inverness site. Physician investigators include a gynecologist proficient in women’s health and obesity studies, an anesthesiologist, cardiologist, family practice physician and others. Linda Gray, RN, is the regional manager of both Nature Coast sites; she has over twenty years of clinical research experience as a coordinator, monitor and administrator.
