Better Care through Better Research

Since its inception in 1965, the Berman Center has been a leader in cardiovascular research and a clinical site for over 100 trials in heart and kidney disease, diabetes, women’s health, cancer and neurological disorders.  For several of these trials, the Center initiated the investigation, and was responsible for study design, implementation and analysis.  The Berman Center is a department of the Minneapolis Medical Research Foundation (MMRF)- a NFP entity that oversees the research conducted by the Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC), a Level  III, public, acute care research and teaching hospital.

Berman is compliant with GCP/regulatory requirements consistent with “best practices” guidelines and focuses on outcomes to impact health policy and practice.

As was the intent of founder Dr. Reuben Berman, a pioneer in the field of cardiovascular clinical research, our primary mission is to empower the medical community to offer better patient care through better research.
