Pharmaceutical Research Services division

Industrial Engineers, members of the Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers (IISE) Society for Health Systems (SHS) have long been supporting the advancement and continuous improvement of the health professions, provision of health services, and reduction of operating costs while key performance indicators (KPIs) continually improve.

In the same spirit of the IISE SHS traditions (, CloserToLean-Six Sigma Consulting Inc., is pleased to support pharmaceutical research by bringing study volunteers and researchers together.

Study participants are compensated by the research organizations. Rates vary depending on the length or duration of the study. (CloserToLean may be in receipt of gratuity or honorarium from the research organizations as well, for introducing participants to the research studies, but that is not the reason for maintaining this page.) We believe that industrial engineers, researchers, and members of the public who qualify and do volunteer for the research — working together will help humanity.

“Today’s volunteers are Tomorrow’s Heroes.” If you are healthy, between 18 – 65, not taking any drug or medication, light/non-smoker, and interested in participating in a clinical study, please email: and we will have someone from the research organization contact you.
