Mission of the Clinical Research Forum
To provide leadership to the national clinical and translational research enterprise and promote understanding and support for clinical research and its impact on health and healthcare.

The Clinical Research Forum believes that continued success for our nation's translational research enterprise will require the development of an integrated system with the capacity to efficiently translate a burgeoning pipeline of basic research into high quality clinical care and improved health outcomes. The Forum‘s strategic objectives are focused in three areas:
The Forum acts as a convener to provide continuing opportunities and promote the standards for sharing best practices and debating substantive scientific and policy issues facing the field.
