There's a new association that combines the focus on clinical research and education. It's called the "Association for Clinical Researchers and Educators (ACRE)."
Association of Clinical Researchers and Educators (ACRE) is an organization of medical professionals dedicated to the advancement of patient care through productive collaboration with industry and its counterparts. ACRE seeks to define and promote balanced policies at academic medical centers and within government that will enhance rather than interfere with our highly valued collaboration. In addition, ACRE will identify and train next generation of researchers and educators.To learn more about this group, visit the website: http://www.acreonline.org/
