The Minnesota Clinical Research Alliance (MCRA) supports clinical research in Minnesota. We will work together to provide clinical research education and support for elected officials, the media, manufacturers, vendors, service providers and academic partners. We will focus on defining clinical research in easily understandable terms that educate all to the instrumental role our industry plays in healthcare and the economy. Patient safety and clinical research integrity are the foundation of our efforts. It is our mission to be recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in patient care, innovation and collaboration for the benefit of our patients.
