Our History

Flourish Philadelphia started as Keystone Clinical Studies in 2003. Our Founder, Cherian Verghese, MD has a background in academic psychiatric research, teaching and clinical care. Our expert team has worked on over 175 clinical trials which led to the approval of medications for 13 neuro-psychiatric conditions. We are the premier trial site in the Greater Philadelphia region and enjoy a reputation for clinical care and data integrity with our patients, community organizations, Sponsors and CROs. A special strength is in Alzheimer’s disease, where we have studies targeting multiple pathological mechanisms, at many stages of the illness, with industry-leading recruitment and retention, especially in minority populations.
