International Clinical Trials' Day 2016

International Clinical Trials Day 2016

International Clinical Trials' Day is celebrated around the world each year on or close to 20 May, commemorating the day in 1747 on which James Lind began the first known controlled trial, comparing different treatments for scurvy then in common use among sailors in the British Royal Navy. (Watch a video explaining the trial to see history in the making.) International Clinical Trials' Day seeks to raise awareness of the importance of research to health care, and draw attention to ways in which the research can become more relevant to practice.

The European Clinical Research Infrastructures Network (ECRIN) helps to co-ordinate the annual commemoration, providing a focal point for international events, meetings, debates, and other celebrations of clinical research. The highlight of each year is a series of public lectures and discussions, held in a different European city. The 2016 celebrations are taking place on May 20th in Prague, Czech Republic. A range of speakers will present a variety of relevant topics, including ‘Clinical trials in the era of personalised medicine', with healthcare professionals and researchers from across Europe in attendance.
