International Clinical Trials’ Day 2015 – JREO Stand
Each year, the International Clinical Trials’ Day is celebrated around the world on or near the 20th May in order to celebrate the day that James Lind started his famous trial on the 20th of May 1747 (www.jameslindlibrary.org).
St George’s celebrated this on the 20th of May 2015. The Joint Research and Enterprise Office (JREO) manned a stand at the main reception (near M&S) with information on taking part in research. There was information for patients, members of the public as well as staff.
The CEO of the trust, Miles Scott paid the stand a visit along with the Principal of the Medical School, Professor Peter Kopelman.
