The Secret Life of a Hospital
14:00 - 16:00
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 taking the opportunity to mark International Clinical Trials Day by hosting this online event and uncovering some of the fantastic research happening locally.
Researchers from the facilities will talk about the important clinical research taking place in Newcastle during the COVID-19 pandemic both in the hospital and University facilities.
