Chappel Group Research is an independent research facility located in Kissimmee, FL. We are in the heart of Central Florida, approximately fifteen miles southwest of Orlando International Airport and ten miles east of Walt Disney World. Dr. Christopher M. Chappel, our Principal Investigator, has been conducting research here since 1989. Currently, we conduct clinical trials for Phase II thru Phase IV studies. Our hours of operation are Monday thru Friday 7:00 am till 4:00 pm, with Saturday and Sunday hours available as needed.

With our large patient base, Chappel Group Research is able to successfully enroll patients in clinical trials in all major therapeutic areas except Oncology and AIDS/HIV. Our staff is well known throughout the community, participating in health fairs throughout the county, city & county sponsored community events and events that we sponsor ourselves. We have been strong participants in the local Chamber of Commerce and were the recipient of the William C. Schwartz Industry Innovation Award through the Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission in 2010. We are business partners with several local schools and are members of advisory boards for Florida Technical College (FTC) and Technical Education Center Osceola (TECO).   We use all of this community exposure to help educate the community on what clinical research is and to bring new and potential research subjects into our facility.
