About Us

Established by Malaysian Ministry of Health in 2012, Clinical Research Malaysia exists to advance global health solutions for a brighter, more hopeful future for the people by providing speedy and reliable end-to-end clinical research support for quality studies.

The development of Malaysia’s first Phase I Clinical Trial Guideline marks an important milestone in the history of clinical research in Malaysia. This guideline is part of a much bigger initiative of the Phase I Realization Project (P1RP) that aims to build a complete and comprehensive early phase clinical research ecosystem in the country. Inpouring of early phase studies presents multiple socioeconomic advantages and these include transfer of knowledge and technologies, inflow of investments, better healthcare infrastructure and increased economic activity.

Understanding Clinical Trials

A clinical trial is an investigation of the effectiveness and safety of a new or improved medicine / treatment / medical device. Clinical trials are an extremely vital process in advancing medical care and treatment. Carefully conducted clinical trials are the safest and fastest way to find treatments that work.



We are committed to continually improve our services to meet the expectations of the clinical research industry players, regulatory agencies and other stakeholders in our effort to build a globally trusted research organization.
