We will be 'On The Spot' with Professor Rowan Pritchard Jones, Medical Director, Consultant Plastic Surgeon and Professor Marc Moncrieff, Consultant Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon on Tuesday 1st March at 5pm discussing Clinical Trials and Patient Involvement.

Clinical trials are essential steps to bringing life-saving and life-changing medicines to market. They are important for discovering new treatments for diseases, as well as new ways to detect, diagnose, and reduce the chance of developing the disease. They can show researchers what does and doesn’t work in humans that cannot be learned in the laboratory and can also help doctors decide if the side effects of a new treatment are acceptable when weighed against the potential benefits.

Let us demystify clinical trials from what they are, the process, how safe they are, patient eligibility and the uncertainties that a patient may face.

During the webinar Professor Marc Moncrieff will also be discussing the recent global melanoma MelMarT-II clinical trial For more information click here.
