UNBritish Columbia, UBritish Columbia, Northern Health open new center for northern clinical research

The University of Northern British Columbia, the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine, and Northern Health have collaboratively launched a new Northern Centre for Clinical Research (NCCR). The NCCR will create more opportunities for clinical and biomedical research in northern British Columbia, and will enable clinical trials, research, and biomedical science relevant to northern, remote, and Indigenous populations. Rural health workers will be supported with research design, regulatory approvals, and project administration. The NCCR will also provide research training and mentoring for students, healthcare workers, and up-and-coming health investigators, and will host a research associate working on research and evaluation of real-time virtual support for clinicians in rural communities. “The Northern Centre for Clinical Research will enable us to answer clinical research questions form a northern, rural, and Indigenous context,” said UNBC Associate VP of the Division of Medical Sciences Dr Paul Winwood.
