is a collaboration of high quality research sites working together to achieve world class performance.


Established in April 2016, PRCCI is a not-for-profit consortium of top academic and private research sites. We enhance clinical research speed and quality by driving performance and efficiencies across our sites, leveraging strategic partnerships, and establishing world-class capabilities.

Our world-class research sites are our key assets and they are investing in this not-for-profit initiative for sustainable and tangible benefits for their businesses and the greater Puerto Rican economy.

PRCCI is unique. As a not-for-profit, we have the interest of the wider Puerto Rican population and our research sites at heart. By understanding the sponsor’s needs, requirements, and preferences along with a hands-on relationship with research sites, we will make for a successful initiative.

PRCCI was developed by the Puerto Rico Science, Technology and Research Trust (PRSTRT), whose overall strategy is to transform Puerto Rico into a knowledge-driven economy.
