About The Clinical Trials Initiative


In 2007-2008, the Indiana Health Industry Forum convened a task force of volunteers to discuss the opportunities in Indiana around clinical trials research.  The task force presented its recommendations to the IHIF Board of Directors in early 2009.  Since then, IHIF has supported a volunteer-driven clinical trials working group.  If you would like to become involved in the group or provide additional suggestions or feedback, please do so through the options provided below.

The Indiana Health Industry Forum and its clinical trials working group recognize the economic value of clinical trials as an important business driver, due to:

  • the concentration of pharma, medical device and academic components of Indiana’s economic base; and
  • national clinical trials financial opportunities

PURPOSE:  To position Indiana as a premier state for the creation and growth of clinical trials



  • Assess/map the Indiana clinical research landscape to create a baseline understanding of the state's infrastructure
  • Grow and promote Indiana’s clinical research community
  • Networking for members of the clinical research community
