Clinical Research Forum Membership

Thank you for your interest in the Clinical Research Forum. We are proud to serve as the collective voice of senior thought leaders in clinical and translational science research. See our board and leadership. 

The Clinical Research Forum is recognized by the leading academic health centers in the nation, industry and government as a trusted resource and valued partner within the clinical research community. Members are the senior leaders of their institutions, including deans, associate deans, senior faculty, and Clinical and Translational Science Institute directors. 

Be Part of a Collective Voice for Change

As a member of the Clinical Research Forum, you will join a group of unified voices that supports the broader interests and needs of clinical and translational science research, and educates policymakers on the nation's investment in clinical research to benefit the health and welfare of its citizens.
