The first ever clinical trial was run in 1747 by James Lind, a surgeon on board a ship. 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 an important new competition - click here to find out more!Go to page

NEW! Children and Clinical Research is a new free, online training course tackling the issue of: how can we ethically undertake the research involving children and young people that is needed to ensure their healthcare services are safe and effective, given that research often involves burdens and risks? Moreover, what role should children, young people and parents themselves play in influencing how research studies are carried out, and how can their voices help influence the wider research agenda?
This peer reviewed course outlines ethical aspects of sharing individual level research data and proposed best practices. It aims to be of value to those designing and reviewing individual research protocols where data sharing is anticipated, and to those developing institutional policies and processes for governing data sharing.
