Global collaboration of acute care clinicians and researchers.



The International Forum for Acute Care Trialists (InFACT) was launched in 2008 as a network of investigator-led clinical research groups and academic institutions whose focus is the optimal care of critically ill children and adults. Our members include 32 organizations from around the world, spanning a spectrum of research foci, structural formality, and experience.

Member Groups

InFACT full members are established investigator-led clinical trials groups or academic research consortia who support the ideals of collaborative, collegial, and open research into the problems facing seriously ill patients. Emerging research consortia may join as affiliate members, while individual investigators who share these interests may join as non-voting members. Membership carries no financial or intellectual obligations beyond sharing the ideals of InFACT and being willing to work collaboratively to achieve these.
