International Clinical Trials Day Event in Full
International Clinical Trials Day is held in May. The day celebrates the anniversary of the first clinical trial by James Lind in 1747 into the causes of scurvy on board the HMS Salisbury.
Newcastle is home to a fantastic range of clinical research which is being delivered in our local Hospital and University facilities. Our colleagues at the NIHR Newcastle Clinical Research Facility are marking International Clinical Trials Day by hosting this online event.
Through a series of talks they we uncovered some of the fantastic research happening in Newcastle during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Feedback from the event:
‘I’m sorry I live so far away. It looks as though Newcastle is very lucky to have such a set of hospitals’
‘Very informative with a good variety of subjects’
‘Found it very interesting and informative. Made you realise all the research and work that goes on that we never hear about.’
