Research Studies

Gather data and leverage research to develop fact-based, scientifically sound solutions.

At the heart of The Riordan Clinic’s day-to-day work and long-term vision is The Bio-Communication Research Institute.  Consisting of a small but dedicated group of scientists who are passionate about their work, the Bio-Communication Research Institute focuses research in areas of nutritional medicine and experimental therapeutics. Because of the close relationship between our research team and the physicians at the Riordan Clinic, we are able to target our research toward innovations that will be directly beneficial to Riordan Clinic patients.  The BCRI operates independently of special interests: it neither solicits nor accepts tax-derived funds. All of its research funding comes from private donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations. Results of the RCRI’s research are presented during lectures and at the conferences, published in peer-reviewed journals, and described on The Clinic’s website.
