Friday 20th May marks International Clinical Trials Day, which recognises the invaluable work of those involved in clinical trials and their contribution towards public health.

The Liverpool Clinical Trials Centre (LCTC), led by Professor Carrol Gamble, is a leading UK clinical trials unit and methodological research group based within the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. Professor Gamble said: "This year it’s more important than ever to celebrate #ICTD2022 and give thanks to the many collaborators and partners with whom we work to design and deliver clinical trials."
