Clinical Research

ACR Center for Research and Innovation™ (CRI)The ACR Center for Research and Innovation™ (CRI) supports, designs and manages research studies that aim to translate new evidence into clinical practice.

We serve as a partner and a resource for ACR members, academia and industry on clinical trial design and management, and on precision diagnostics and treatment. We design artificial intelligence algorithms, and use new knowledge derived from AI and other data-driven methods to inform research, practice and reimbursement.
