About us

The Calgary Centre for Clinical Research (CCCR) is a clinical research support service, located within the Cumming School of Medicine, that provides a full suite of specialized support—from consultations to budgeting and financial guidance—for University of Calgary clinical researchers.  

Our mission is to support and advance high quality clinical research at the University of Calgary. Through our services, we help researchers reduce start-up times, minimize administrative burden and improve the financial management of clinical research projects.

The CCCR supports the clinical research process by:

  • Providing guidance regarding the requirements for conducting clinical research at the University of Calgary.
  • Offering administrative and financial services and guidance throughout the study start-up and closeout process.
  • Bringing together the experts to ease the burden of connecting across the University's clinical research service groups.
  • Assessing project readiness and providing recommendations to address potential challenges that may arise.
