QPS-MRA's in-house advertising agency (Miami Research Marketing & Advertising - MRMA) handles all patient recruitment needs for both Early and Late Phase research studies. MRMA has successfully rolled out more than 5,000 patient recruitment marketing campaigns. MRMA excels in finding the right patients to enroll in clinical trials. It is dedicated to producing the most effective patient recruitment campaigns. We have reached millions of targets with English and Spanish campaigns. This continual effort has enabled us to build one of the most extensive patient databases sortable by a variety of criteria.

As a result of our progress and growth, our Marketing Department has become a full-service In-house Advertising Bureau. All advertising campaigns are seen through from protocol review to artistic inception, media buying, and ultimately, response-tracking.

MRMA reaches more people for less ad dollars by establishing solid relationships with the local media. We are continously looking for new ways to inform our community about our research studies by using conventional, digital and social media channels. MRMA's Marketing Director (Jack R. Mesa) has been in the South Florida media since 1984, and has rolled out thousands of subject recruitment campaigns with MRA since 2001. Mr. Mesa's experience originates from key positions held in English and Spanish radio & television stations, print, direct mail and internet marketing/design firms, including fortune 100 companies. This experience empowers MRMA to develop invaluable media relations and media buying leverage.
