Pilot of mCTA launched on Monday October 3rd – pilot and mCTA highlighted in CMAJ

Further to the completion of the first ever model Clinical Trial Agreement (mCTA), the Candian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) will be leading a pilot of the mCTA with ACAHO members and Canada's Research-Based Pharmaceutical Companies (Rx&D) members beginning this month.  This pilot is a significant milestone in building capacity to address operational barriers related to clinical trials.  Organizations choosing to partake in the pilot will be recognized publicly by CIHR and asked to adapt the mCTA as the basis of contract negotiations.  The pilot of the mCTA was featured in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ).  Click here for more information on the pilot.
