The ACRC is transforming the clinical research landscape in Alberta.



Provincial Roadmap for clinical research in Alberta

The Alberta Clinical Research Consortium (ACRC) with researchers and representatives from universities, health care systems, and communities across Alberta came together to build the Provincial Roadmap that outlines the necessary steps to conduct a clinical research study from start to finish. 

ACRC Priorities
