Webinar: An inside guide to unlocking clinical research in the UK: Part 1 - Plan for clinical trial success


21 March 2023


14:00 to 15:00



Target audience:
Life sciences companies and Contract Research Organisations (CROs)

Part 1: Set your research on the right path

This session focuses on how to plan for success by getting expert advice on the deliverability of your proposed protocol.

The UK has a proud history of being at the forefront of innovation and discovery, with world-class infrastructure available to support health and care research across the nation. And yet, for some commercial research organisations, realising research objectives – such as recruitment – remains an ongoing challenge.

Addressing delays in trial delivery is vital to the UK’s continued success as a global leader in commercial research.

To help unlock the full promise of research opportunities in the UK, tools and services have been developed to help ensure the feasibility of NHS trials and give companies the confidence to plan, place and perform clinical research in the UK quickly and efficiently.

But how can life science organisations ensure that they are making the most of these resources and maximising the potential of commercial trials in the UK?

In this two-part webinar series, brought to you by the NIHR in partnership with Pharmaphorum, industry experts will dive into the opportunities for commercial research in the UK. During these sessions, attendees will learn more about the tools and services available to support activities before protocols are finalised, and find out how working in partnership with UK organisations can help unlock commercial research delivery.

  • Sarah Durston, Senior Director, UK Country Head, Astra Zeneca
  • Louise Knowles, Deputy Director, Head of Research Capacity and Growth at the Department of Health and Social Care
