International Trials Day Competition 2016 #Happy International Clinical Trial Day!!

Image
Clinical Trials Day is celebrated around the world on or near May 20 each year in order to celebrate the day that James Lind started what is often considered the first randomized clinical trial aboard a ship on May 20, 1747.

International Trials Day Competition 2016 The first ever clinical trial was run in 1747 by James Lind, a surgeon on board a ship, who noticed that some sailors were getting scurvy and others weren't. He randomised his subjects into two groups, and supplemented the diet of half of the sailors with fruit and vegetables, to determine whether this would improve their scurvy. Clinical Trials are now one of the most important tools in research to determine whether there is evidence for different treatments. We are proud to work in clinical research, and hope you are too. To celebrate the importance of this work, Global Health Trials is launching today an important new competition.


What could we win? The winner of the competition will win the funding to hold an important …
