About Insight Clinical Trials 

Insight Clinical Trials is one of the leading independent research institutes in Northeast Ohio. With our patients and their families as our first priority, we are dedicated to safe research specializing in mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other neurological disorders.


In 2017, Insight Clinical Trials was named a Syneos Health Catalyst Site. Additionally, Insight Clinical Trials is proud to have been selected as a 2019 Global Alzheimer's Platform site. GAP is a leader in innovative strategies to improve clinical research trials.

Insight Clinical Trials was established 12 years ago by Elisa Poggi, MSW/LSW. She saw a need for more treatment options for patients with neurological disorders and mental health conditions.


Mark Stillman, MD, serves as Principal Investigator at Insight Clinical Trials and is board certified in Neurology/Psychiatry and Internal Medicine. He brings 30+ years of experience in clinical research and clinical treatment involving pain, headache, Alzheimer's disease and other neurophychiatric disorders. Together they have created a welcoming, encouraging environment for patients and families to learn more about their diseases and what options are available.  

Our staff consists of highly-trained and experienced physicians, nurses, lab technicians, phlebotomists, and coordinators. Additionally, we are proud to be partnered with a variety of both global and local businesses.

We know that managing mental health conditions and neurological disorders can be difficult and overwhelming. Through clinical trials, we are able to offer our community access to newly developed treatments in hopes of bettering quality of life and making valuable strides in the advancement of medicine.


We are continually looking for patients who are interested in participating in any of our numerous ongoing trials.


As always, services at Insight Clinical Trials are of no cost to patients or their families and we do not require insurance. The cooperation of patients and the vital role they play in the advancement of treatments and cures is instrumental to our understanding of medications. Patients are compensated for their time and travel expenses. 


If you or a loved one might benefit from our services, call us today to set up a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our board-certified physicians.
