ACRC: Alberta Clinical Research Consortium
The ACRC is transforming the clinical research landscape in Alberta.
Our vision is high quality, integrated and efficient clinical research in Alberta. The ACRC has been facilitating and enhancing the clinical research community in the province since 2011. Clinical research is an integral part of patient care. It allows access to the latest treatment and prevention options, improves patient care, and ensures Alberta attracts and retains the best and the brightest. Global competition has never been greater adding to the many challenges that exist when conducting clinical research in Canada. These challenges are being met head on by the ACRC, an exciting front-line driven collaboration between academic and community-based researchers, and representatives from the health care systems.
- The ACRC builds on Alberta’s strengths and leverages expertise from across the province to reduce barriers, streamline processes and improve efficiencies in clinical research.
- Working together to find province-wide solutions, the ACRC is enhancing Alberta’s research capacity making Alberta the preferred location for conducting clinical research.
The ACRC is implementing its first phase and starting its second. This infographic highlights (532 kB PDF) some of the things the ACRC is developing. The research enterprise involves everyone–academic and community-based researchers, administrators, clinical care and service departments, and experts in the areas of legal and privacy.
