The Lynn Health Science Institute is an independent clinical research center strategically located in the heartland of the United States.

In operation since 1989, the Institute serves a very broad and diverse population of approximately 1 million in the greater Oklahoma City metropolitan area. Located just 15 minutes from Will Rogers World Airport, the Lynn Health Science Institute, in a multi-therapeutic setting, offers an array of services and equipment to conduct clinical trials. The Institute has done over 400 clinical trials, working with numerous pharmaceutical companies and CRO’s. The site also maintains an 6-bed clinical sleep laboratory and a digestive motility diagnostic center, and provides DME(CPAP) services.

In 2002 the Lynn Health Science Institute founded the Lynn Institute of the Rockies in Coloardo Springs, CO as its second clinical research site. In 2005, LION Research in Norman, OK, and in 2006 Lynn Institute of the Ozarks were added to the network of clinical research sites.  In 2010, the Lynn Institute of Denver was established.
