Our methodology research at the SCT annual conference 2023
19 May 2023
Sunday 21st May marks the beginning of the 44th Annual Meeting of the Society for Clinical Trials, where several researchers from the MRC Clinical Trials at UCL will be presenting their latest work.
We will give a range of presentations on new developments in clinical trials methodology, including talks, discussions (both panel discussions and roundtable discussions) and a pre-conference workshop.
SCT is an international organisation that advocates for the use of clinical trials to advance human health. Its members include representatives from academia, the pharmaceutical and device industries, government agencies, medical groups and centres, and clinical research entities. The SCT annual meeting is one of the largest gatherings of people to share research on how to improve clinical trials.
The conference will take place from Sunday 21 May to Wednesday 24 May in Baltimore, MD, USA.
The theme for this year’s meeting is “Championing high-quality evidence to optimise human health”.
