NCCR 2020 is spearheaded by the Institute for Clinical Research (ICR). ICR is one of the six research institutes under the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Ministry of Health Malaysia.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) is serious about putting Malaysia on the clinical research map with a multipronged approach to aggressively promote the country as a regional clinical trials hub. The MOH, through its Institute for Clinical Research (ICR) supports the National Conference on Clinical Research as it is a forum that brings together clinical investigators, industry professionals, regulatory agencies and policy makers to address the need for knowledgeable and skilled professionals to achieve this aim. The conference and training workshops will fulfil a growing need for human capital equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills that will give Malaysia that competitive edge.

The Association of Clinical Registries, Malaysia (ACRM) was established to facilitate the set up and maintenance of clinical registries and databases in the country. The formation of the association was motivated by increasing awareness of the huge untapped potential of the clinical databases and disease registers to serve as a powerful tool for public health surveillance, health outcomes management, healthcare quality improvement and cost containment. The ACRM provides a forum to discuss issues arising from the implementation of clinical registries and promotes communication and collaboration among clinicians, clinical epidemiologists and researches, clinical IT professionals and healthcare managers on clinical registry related issues. This association also aims to be the one stop portal for users to access most of the clinical databases in Malaysia.
