Association for Clinical Research Professionals

Association for Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) is an industry organization that supports professional development for clinical research professionals in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries, and those in hospital, academic medical centers and physician office settings. Many of our clinical research coordinators are members of ACRP or SOCRA and we encourage and pay for our clinical research coordinators to seek certification through the Alliance Coordinator Award Program which provides the necessary funds to reimburse for membership, registration for the certification exam, and practice tests.

In addition our research compliance auditing and monitoring team are Certified Clinical Research Associates (CCRA), with the certification and expertise to monitor multicenter clinical trials conducted under Investigational New Drug (IND) applications or Investigational Device Exemptions (IDE).  The Director of our Quality Assurance branch of Research Compliance, Emmelyn Kim and our Research Compliance Officer, Cynthia Hahn, recently published “Developing Centralized Monitoring Support Services for Sponsor Investigators in Academic Medicine”, in the ACRP supported journal The Monitor (June 2012).
