As part of BC AHSN, Clinical Trials BC advances British Columbia’s development as a world-class destination for clinical trials across our province’s hospitals, research institutions and communities. Our mission is to maximize the health, educational, and economic benefits of clinical trials to the citizens of BC.
Working with diverse partners across BC’s clinical research community, Clinical Trials BC is focused on four strategic priorities:
- Business development – We attract new investment from networks, associations and industry partners by promoting BC’s clinical trials capacity, technology platforms, and expertise;
- Capacity development and training – We increase province-wide capacity for conducting high quality clinical trials that meet strict ethical and regulatory standards;
- Enabling environment – We support clinical trials excellence, efficiency, effectiveness, innovation, and value for all stakeholders by advancing practices and processes;
- Patient/participant experience – We optimize British Columbians’ participation in clinical trials by helping to remove barriers and enhance the participant experience.
Clinical Trials BC builds upon, and expands the functions of the former BC Clinical Research Infrastructure Network (BCCRIN).
