 As CEO and Medical Director, Dr. Soufer is responsible for the vision and growth of Chase Medical Research.

Under his leadership, the clinical research company has grown from a staff of 1 to 14 medical and clinical research professionals today, helping connect thousands of patients to new treatment options for multiple medical conditions. Today, CMR is the leading independent, multi-therapeutic research company in Connecticut with two large investigative sites.

Over the past eighteen years, Dr. Soufer also has served as the principal investigator for over 90 percent of the studies conducted at CMR and has led over 280 clinical research studies. Before trials are offered to participants, he ensures the selected studies meet the highest standards and that each patient receives outstanding care throughout their participation in the trials.

In addition to managing and directing CMR, Dr. Soufer remains committed to community health education. Through many community outreach initiatives, medical symposiums and speeches at organizations like the Alzheimer’s Association, he teaches the many local residents about medical conditions, treatment options and clinical trials.

Dr. Soufer has established relationships with many Connecticut physicians groups that specialize in internal medicine, endocrinology, nephrology, cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology and more. This trust in Dr. Soufer and CMR allows access to a large participant pool and specialty medical services required for success in clinical trials.

He currently dedicates all his professional time to CMR.  Prior to 2012, he was involved in CMR while also working at a multispecialty group practice in Waterbury, CT which specialized in internal medicine, endocrinology and cardiology. For over twenty years he was the managing partner of the group practice.

Dr. Soufer received his medical degree from the Université Libre de Bruxelles medical school in Brussels, Belgium. He completed his residency in internal medicine at The Hospital of Saint Raphael {now incorporated into Yale-New Haven Hospital} in New Haven, CT and his fellowship in endocrinology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, NY.
