New Health/Medical Database: Canadian Clinical Trials Asset Map (CCTAM)
This online database includes details on clinical trial sites, research networks, research ethics boards, institutions/hospitals and individual clinical research experts, and will help advance Canada’s clinical research capabilities. The CCTAM offers tremendous marketing benefits to clinical research organizations and investigators and will allow clinical trial sponsors to place trials effectively and efficiently reducing clinical trial start-up times.
The CCTAM database is the only pan-Canadian, fully inclusive database that is bilingual, free to use, easy to search, comprehensive and regularly updated. A forthcoming update will allow users to search by federal riding boundaries.
The CCTAM was created in response to the Action Plan to Help Attract More Clinical Trials to Canada and is overseen by the Canadian Clinical Trials Coordinating Centre (CCTCC) through extensive participation from clinical trial community in Canada.
CCTCC is a partnership between the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Canada’s Research-Based Pharmaceutical Companies (Rx&D) and HealthCareCAN.
