BC Clinical Research Infrastructure Network (BCCRIN)

BCCRIN is pleased to present Version 2.0 of the Clinical Research Asset Map. Originally commissioned in 2010, International BioPharma Solutions Ltd undertook to collect and collate information on existing infrastructure and clinical trial activity in British Columbia. The purpose of the document was to help stakeholders understand BC's strengths and to identify opportunities to build on past investments and successes to create a world class clinical research enterprise for the province.

Version 2.0 builds on these efforts and presents an updated, comprehensive database of academic and independent clinical research sites, investigators, research ethics boards and service providers. With support from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP), this easy to navigate database is equipped with search and filter functions and forms to allow information to be easily updated and kept current. The database provides a wealth of information on the tremendous research strengths we have in British Columbia. We invite you to visit the Asset Map and see what BC has to offer!
