QPS is a global Clinical Research Organization supporting the discovery, preclinical and clinical development of new pharmaceutical products. Headquartered in Newark, Delaware, QPS has 11 worldwide clinical research and development sites which house a mix of clinical research and laboratory facilities. Our clinical research sites are in two states (Missouri and Florida) and four countries (Netherlands, Taiwan, China and India). The local clinic in Springfield, Missouri is a QPS flagship site with 240 Phase I beds, to manage multiple clinical studies in parallel. Since opening its doors in Springfield in 1994, QPS has conducted over 1,000 FDA-regulated studies and paid out over $35 Million to local participants.


We are an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau (A+ report grade) and a member of the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce. A leader in clinical studies in the Midwest, QPS is an international leader in contract research with facilities in North America, Europe and Asia. Our mission is to accelerate the development of drugs worldwide by enabling breakthroughs in pharmaceutical innovation.


Generally, clinical research studies require participants to spend time with others in our comfortable and attractive facility. Your time commitment may be as simple as a few hours to an overnight stay, a couple of weekends, or several days in a row.

Compensation for each program varies depending on several factors, such as:
  • The number and length of stays or visits to our facility
  • Any lifestyle restrictions
  • The number, types and frequency of procedures involved

Stipends may range from $250 to $8,000 and average $250-$350 per day. Since we opened the doors of our clinical research organization in 1994, QPS has had an estimated payout of over $35 million to our Springfield, Missouri participants. We are proud to make a positive impact in the local community.
