The research department at Colorado Springs Neurological Associates was started in 2011.

Over the years, we’ve conducted over 75 clinical trials in multiple disease states including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, adult and pediatric migraine, epilepsy, neuropathy, and orthostatic hypotension.

Our research team is comprised of our neurologists and PAs, as well as our research director, Christen Kutz, and our research coordinators, Jodi Ventimiglia and Jennifer Orban.

In addition to clinical trials, we also generate our own research ideas and develop protocols to answer scientific questions.

Many of these projects have resulted in research poster presentations in Barcelona, Paris, London, Stockholm, Dubai, Santiago (Chile), and Hong Kong.

As one of the state’s most productive, private research institutions, we are always rethinking, measuring, and evolving the way we deliver care and treat illness. This is a great advantage to our patients, who may receive access to new and upcoming treatments.

Our research staff is dedicated to improving the lives of our patients. With our esteemed research capabilities, we aspire to find new ways to improve our patient’s health.

Colorado Springs Neurological Associates is one of the largest and longest-standing neuroscience medical practices in southern Colorado.  Our aim is to deliver the highest standard of neurological care – the same level of care we would want for ourselves or our loved ones. 

The Center has a dedicated clinical research institute with experienced principal investigators and full-time research staff.  Collectively, our investigators have vast experience conducting phase II through phase IV clinical trials in a broad range of neurologic diseases affecting adults and children.


Our investigators and staff have experience conducting clinical trials in collaboration with major pharmaceutical companies and contract research organizations. 

The therapeutic areas that are the focus of our clinical research program include Epilepsy, Headache/Migraine, Multiple Sclerosis, dementia, Huntington’s Disease, and other movement disorders.


Our facility has MRI access and an electro-neurodiagnostics suite, multiple exam rooms, a laboratory with centrifuge and a -20° freezer, secure and temperature-controlled study drug storage, and a dedicated research room with high-speed Internet access.
