Welcome to Nova Health Management & Research Group (NHMRG)


Nova Health Management & Research Group, PC (NHMRG) is a multispecialty clinical research site committed to excellence in clinical research. We bring state of the art clinical studies to community practices and their patients while helping them execute them to the highest standards of quality. We are located in Sterling Virginia and work closely with committed physician group practices in Lansdowne, Ashburn, Sterling, Reston and Fairfax.

NHMRG was conceived out of the experience of its founder Ravi R. Iyer, MD. The field of scientific research is familiar territory for Dr. Iyer. After spending nearly a decade in academic research institutions in India at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Dr. Iyer wanted to find some way of marrying the rigorous standards and excellence of cutting edge research with the everyday common problems besetting his patients in the community.

“Every physician doing Primary practice as either a General Practitioner or an Internist in the community would love to be able to offer his own patients the access to the latest care options and cutting edge science that, in the past, was only available at tertiary care or academic centers”, Dr. Iyer notes, “But in reality there is no mechanism in place for this”.

“Not only does the average patient have to go to far-flung academic centers for such access, the average physician practicing in the community is also poorly equipped to execute a state of the art clinical trial with the rigor that it demands. This is where Nova Health Management & Research Group, PC comes in. Together with RxTrials, we give enlightened community physician practices the resources to offer state of the art scientific trials to their patients and enable them to execute it…. and it gives the patients in the community the chance to be involved in potential new treatments and interventions right at their doorstep, in a manner that helps us better understand and treat their disease. This in turn not only helps them but helps all of society as well,” he says.

Nova Health Management & Research Group, PC and its network of physician practices treat a wide spectrum of diseases, including metabolic & endocrine disorders, vascular disease, hypertension and cardiac conditions, digestive diseases, pulmonary and critical care conditions, musculoskeletal and orthopedic/arthritic disorders, women’s health and gynecology, and rheumatologic disorders. Their focus is on trials that are designed to improve both existing treatments as well as identify new treatments that target these disorders in novel enhanced ways.
