Each year, the International Clinical Trials Day is celebrated around the world on or near the 20th of May in order to celebrate the day that James Lind started his famous trial on the 20th of May 1747.
On Wednesday 24 May this year, Barts Health NHS Trust (in association with Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) and Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry) will be hosting Research Matters event as part of the annual celebration of International Clinical Trials Day. This programme will feature talks from award-winning academics and clinicians, patients and others, to showcase the high quality clinical research taking place within Barts Health hospitals.
