For Industry

Accelerating clinical trials, advancing clinical therapies

Every year, University of Calgary researchers partner with industry sponsors across a range of sectors to turn knowledge into breakthrough treatments. In fact, we’re one of Alberta’s busiest clinical trial sites, with over 200 trials conducted annually, involving patients from over 20 therapeutic areas. As a fully-integrated site, our industry partners have access to internationally recognized investigators, state-of-the-art research facilities and expert-driven services designed to accelerate phase I-IV studies.

Combining scientific expertise with real-world experience

We understand that ground-breaking research requires more than an infrastructure to succeed. They require clinical expertise, cross-departmental collaboration and access to research professionals with diverse methodological skillsets. As a leading academic research site, we’re able to offer this competitive edge to our industry partners. Our faculty, researchers and operational staff work side by side everyday with patients across multiple therapeutic areas; and our business accelerator teams help turn discoveries into startups, spinoffs and licensing agreements.
