Steven Evans -- President and Senior Research Scientist



Steven Evans, M.S., President and Senior Research Scientist, brings 40 years of professional health care research to the development of Protocols of Care. He has designed and implemented several national clinical trials and has contributed in total over 100 peer-reviewed articles, chapters, books, or keynote addresses in 10 countries. He has provided over 22,5000 consultations over the past 10 years to clients in 10 countries and over four continents.


He has been engaged in health-sciences-related research, development, and its practical implementation for over 40 years, including the fields of nursing clinical practice, hereditary cancer, genetics, genetic counseling support systems, medical diagnostic systems, health sciences education, and nutritional supplements particularly related to cancer prevention.

He has disseminated and discussed his research and analysis in over 100 journal articles and/or professional presentations, monographs, chapters, books, or technical papers and holds several patents. His research areas have also included non-numeric simulations, expert systems, neural networks, knowledge discovery/data mining methodologies, hereditary cancer syndromes, genetic metabolic pathway elucidation, and nutritional supplement research.


Evans holds a B.A. from Tulane University and a M.S. from Carnegie-Mellon University. His doctoral-level graduate studies focused on applied mathematics, cognitive psychology, computer science, and artificial intelligence. He served on the faculty in the Business School of Carnegie-Mellon University and later founded and directed the Office of Instructional Science Research for the Schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, and Nursing within Creighton University's Health Sciences Center, in Omaha, Nebraska.


He also had been a Senior Research Scientist at the Hereditary Cancer Institute in Creighton University’s Medical School. Evans also served as Head of Research and Development for a number of national health care corporations centered on his prior research developments.


Evans founded the non-profit, tax-exempt Therapeutics Research Institute (TRI) to pursue rigorous research and the development of clinical protocols for complementary and alternative medicine approaches focused on disease treatment, prevention, and care. TRI sells no products nor charges any fees for any consultations or protocols it provides, and Evans has provided these protocols to tens of thousands of clients in over 10 countries across four continents.

Executive Director and Research Associate


Debra Fuller is Executive Director and a Research Associate for Therapeutics Research Institute. She is also the Founder and Executive Director of The Myrrh Foundation based in Baltimore, Maryland.  Debra has been addressing issues and challenges in health care for over 20 years. Both as a previous health care provider as well as an ongoing research for TRI, her interests and contributions have spanned the continuum from the implementation of health care for patients to the research underpinnings that may enhance it.

Her long-term interests have focused on the great discrepancy between the potential availability of effective health interventions and the financial as well as informational barriers that have precluded their usage. Over the past decade, she has undertaken the planning and now the implementation of the Myrrh Foundation to address this need.

Drawing on her very high level of expertise in organizational and administrative management with extensive experience in complex project implementation, she brings these skills to the formation and implementation of both TRI and the Myrrh Foundation. In concert with these resources, her extensive networking in related health care areas further enhances the potential successes for the Foundation's mission.  Presently she is also spearheading the Autism Study as well as other studies with TRI’s research-based Protocols.
