The Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) welcomes Altura as a Workforce Champion member of the Partners in Workforce Advancement.
Partners in Workforce Advancement is a multi-stakeholder collaborative initiative to grow and expand the diversity of the clinical research workforce, and to set and support standards for workforce competence.
“Organizations aligned with ACRP’s mission are working together to improve clinical trial quality and outcomes for patients by focusing where others have not – workforce planning, development, and assessment. Why? Because in clinical research, people are everything,” says Jim Kremidas, ACRP Executive Director. “We are thankful for the support of Altura and look forward to working together to overcome these critical challenges.”

- Grow & Diversity the Workforce
- Define, Align & Validate Competence Standards
- Support Sites During COVID-19 Pandemic
“Altura is dedicated to expanding access to research of all types and we are pleased to support ACRP’s work force initiative,” says Pete Fronte, Altura President/CEO. “Ensuring a growing and high quality research workforce is essential for accelerating medical innovation.”
