I am Research

International Clinical Trials Day, 20 May 

Every year, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) promotes International Clinical Trials Day on 20 May. This is a special day to celebrate clinical research all over the world and highlight the important impact research has had on medicine to date.

For the NIHR, International Clinical Trials Day is an opportunity to showcase the diversity of health and social care research, how you can get involved and the benefits it brings to patients and the public.

In 2017 I Am Research was launched which follows in the footsteps of OK to Ask.

I Am Research focuses on:

  • promoting the benefits of clinical research through social media, press and events
  • signposting people to the UK Clinical Trials Gateway website - nihr.ac.uk- which enables people to find clinical studies of interest to them locally and nationally
