New podcast from the Institute of Clinical Research
The Institute of Clinical Research (ICR) have today launched a new monthly podcast, which looks at news from the world of clinical research, and I'm delighted to say that I was a co-presenter of the first episode, along with Andrew Smith from the ICR.
The podcast is not intended as a comprehensive news roundup (the ICR website does that job nicely), but a chance to have a more in-depth look and a bit of a chat about a few of the news stories that particularly caught our attention. In the first episode, we talk about active controls in clinical trials, the Academy of Medical Sciences report on clinical research, a new FDA requirement for informed consent forms, the North-West Exemplar Project, a drug scandal involving a diabetes drug and the French regulator, and the sad news of the closure of Pfizer's Sandwich plant.
I shall certainly be listening to the podcast regularly, and hope to be back as guest presenter from time to time as well.
