CISCRP Headquarters – Boston, MA
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.
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.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement
CISCRP is committed to improving Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) both internally, within our own organization, and externally, in the broader clinical research space. Since we started our mission-driven work in 2003, we have strived to better understand and meet the needs of patients, the public, and the communities who have been underrepresented in clinical research.
Like many organizations, we are continuing to educate ourselves on DEI and how to best achieve this in our workplace and the work that we do. To that end, we are working diligently towards becoming a more diverse and inclusive organization, and continuously optimizing our programs that aim to improve representation in clinical research.
We welcome your questions and are open to collaboration opportunities that will help us meet our DEI goals. You can reach us at email@example.com.
