PACRA - THE CONCEPT PACRA was launched in 2009 out of the recognition that whilst there are a number of organizations offering a variety of training, education, services and information to clinical research professionals on a global basis, there was no single organization providing such services with a dedicated focus on Asia. PACRAs focus is to help further the advancement of all aspects of clinical research training, education, services and news or information within this defined geographical remit. EAST-WEST GEOGRAPHICAL COVERAGE PACRAs geographical coverage extends from Japan in the east through to the Arabian Peninsula (Asia Minor) in the west, following the network of trade routes historically known as the Silk Road or Silk Route. NORTH-SOUTH GEOGRAPHICAL COVERAGE From a north south perspective, PACRAs geographical coverage extends from the Arctic Ocean in the north to the Indian Ocean and South China Sea in the south.
