About Lucas Research

Moving Medicine Forward Over Two Decades

Lucas Research, head-quartered in Morehead City, NC is a world-class clinical research site network that started with a focus on research for diseases of the endocrine system. We feel this is a great way to serve our patients as well as benefit millions more by working to develop more effective medications for those struggling with diabetes, weight loss, and other endocrine diseases.

We are also a specialty medical facility and focus on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the endocrine system. Endocrinology is the subspecialty of Internal Medicine focusing on hormonal and glandular problems such as the pancreas, reproductive system, thyroid disease, diabetes and its complications, pituitary diseases, osteoporosis, calcium metabolism, adrenal gland diseases, growth disorders and disorders of sexual development.

“We are proud of the work our team is doing to bring our patients the advancements of tomorrow to improve their lives today.”
