Medical Affiliated Research Center, Inc. (MARC) is a multi-specialty research entity, which covers a broad spectrum of medical conditions. MARC services not only the local community of participants, but also the health care community by providing clinical research studies funded by pharmaceutical companies. Patients are selected to participate depending on the inclusion/exclusion criteria of the protocol written by the sponsor. All study-related tests, procedures, and study medications are usually provided at no charge to study participants.

Dr. James G. McMurray, a well-known Urologist in Huntsville since 1974, founded MARC. MARC became incorporated in 1995 with Sherry Brooks as the Director of Research.
