International Clinical Trials Day!

May 20th is International Clinical Trials Day, when we celebrate the vital role that clinical research plays in bringing new medicines safely to patients.
The publication produced to coincide with this day (accessed via the link) has contributors from across the spectrum of interested parties and includes associations, regulatory bodies, research organisations and industry. It highlights the most recent advances in research methods and technologies, many prompted by the COVID -19 pandemic and is a very interesting and exciting read!
