About Us

Our Mission

The Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation, Inc.’s (CISCRP) core mission is to provide accessible, relevant, useful, high-quality educational resources, programs, and services that increase awareness and understanding of the clinical research process; recognize and appreciate the unprecedented gift of participation in clinical trials; enhance and enrich the participation experience for patients and their families; and promote engagement and partnership between clinical research professionals, patients, and the public.

Our Vision

Educating and Empowering Patients and the Public to be Viewed and Engaged as Partners in Clinical Research

Our Core Values

Collaboration | Integrity | Service | Creativity | Respect | Passion

Informing the Public

We strive to educate and help patients, their family members, and members of the general public that are interested in clinical research understand the process and what it means to be a clinical research participant. We help locate ongoing clinical trials through our free service called Search Clinical Trials, provide a wide variety of clinical research resources, and honor those who have participated in clinical research.

Collaborating with Industry Professionals

We help professionals better understand the study volunteer with facts and figures, polls, surveys and other resources, while promoting a greater awareness of clinical trials. We are uniquely positioned to provide several plain language services as well. Additionally, we offer a library of clinical research content—brochures, posters, videos—and other materials to license, sponsor, or co-develop.
