Canada announces new clinical trials consortium, training platforms to foster medical innovation


The Government of Canada has announced new funds to support the launch of a new consortium, research projects, and training platforms that will foster medical innovation. The Accelerating Clinical Trials Consortium, which will be led by McMaster University Professor PJ Deveraux, received $39M to expand existing clinical trial networks and create new networks in order to support collaboration and knowledge sharing. Canada also invested over $32M into seven training platforms that will train scientists and researchers, as well as approximately $60M into 22 research projects related to clinical trial phases, designs, and objectives. The institutions receiving funding for these initiatives include McMaster, Concordia University, McGill University, Western University, the University of British Columbia, and the University of Alberta.
