ACTA and ARCS Australia collaborate to host online events on international clinical trials day

Health Industry Hub | May 20, 2020 |

Pharma News: International Clinical Trials Day is celebrated on 20 May to recognise the first randomised clinical trial initiated by James Lind aboard a ship on May 20, 1747.

In recognition of this day, Australian Clinical Trials Alliance (ACTA), ARCS Australia and partners have come together to create Beyond COVID-19: a solution-focussed forum after identifying a need for the clinical trial sector to collaborate and share information.

Beyond COVID-19: a solution-focussed forum is an exciting new initiative for people working in clinical trials to share their learnings and assist with solutions.

Solving problems is at the heart of clinical trials, and the COVID-19 pandemic has seen the sector becoming more agile; adapting existing trials, finding new ways to commence planned trials, or moving quickly to help test treatments and solve the riddles of coronavirus.

The pathway out of the pandemic will also see some twists and turns and more problem-solving for the sector, where the Beyond COVID-19: a solution-focussed forum will continue to be a sharing space.

Register FREE & join 22,000+ industry professionals in reading the latest industry news & engaging content from Health Industry Hub, the ONLY one-stop-hub connecting Australia’s Pharma, MedTech and Biotech industry professionals.
