While with USAMRIID, Mr. Beardmore authored a position paper proposing innovative approaches to developing investigational bio-warfare protective products for force health protection. These experiences led Mr. Beardmore to recognize the serious need to improve systems and permit ethical research to be conducted more efficiently. In 2004 he took on the role of Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of Premiere Onocology, located in Santa Monica, CA, Scottsdale, AZ, and San Diego, CA; offering patients access to early phase oncology clinical trials in one of the first community treatment settings.
