When did you become CR Foundation®?

CRA, Clinical Research Associates was founded in 1976 by clinicians who believed practitioners could confirm efficacy and clinical usefulness of new products an avoid both the experimentation on patients and failures in the closet. With this purpose in mind, CRA was organized as a unique volunteer effort where clinicians worldwide unite their expertise for the sole purpose of testing all types of dental products and disseminating results to colleagues throughout the world. 

In January 2008, the CRA Newsletter® and Clinical Research Associates® was renamed Gordon J. Christensen Clinicians Report.

"We are increasing our research base by several thousand qualified professionals and launching new ground-breaking programs that will significantly increase communication among dental professionals." - Gordon J. Christensen
