About the Suncoast Chapter
Welcome to Florida's Suncoast Chapter of the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP). We proudly serve the west-central coast of Florida to provide up-to-date information, continuing education credits, and networking for the research community. We are a comprehensive organization of clinical research professionals from a variety of backgrounds.
As a chapter of the ACRP, the mission of this organization shall be to provide a readily accessible mechanism for regional program development for clinical research professionals to foster professional interaction, continuing education, problem-solving, and discussion of professional issues.
Our educational opportunities would not be possible without a dedicated team of officers and volunteers. We are always looking for interested and enthusiastic people with a passion for clinical research to get involved.

Becoming an active member in your local ACRP chapter is a great way to learn more about clinical research in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry and it also provides many great benefits; a member of the Suncoast Chapter of ACRP can expect to receive the following benefit:
- Obtaining research-related continuing education credits for each speaker meeting you attend – which counts towards certification maintenance

- Networking in all areas of research with other engaged research professionals
