  • "I'm a community clinician (MD) and include research as part of my practice. I am new to the Calgary area and less familiar with the research resources available here. The ACRC has been most helpful in giving prompt and useful guidance to my research questions. They also introduced me to experts such as methodologists and statisticians to facilitate my research efforts. These services provided through the ACRC Concierge Service have been most helpful and appreciated. "

  • "The ACRC team was integral in helping us find a home for our real-world data-based study. They are experts in Alberta's landscape of real-world evidence initiatives and groups. In addition to helping us match with the Alberta RWE Consortium, they engaged with us in collaborative discussions on evolving partnerships between the province of Alberta and industry. I'm looking forward to working together with them on future, patient-focused clinical research programs."
