The conference is open to anyone involved in planning, managing and delivering clinical research in Scotland, particularly clinical researchers, funders of clinical research, clinical research support staff and NHS research and development staff.
With the theme of ‘Realistic Medicine: The Value and Impact of Research and Innovation’ we are delighted to welcome a range of expert speakers to the conference including:

It will be a full programme demonstrating the strength of our research offering in Scotland and provide maximum opportunity for learning, discussion and networking through a range of plenary, parallel and discussion sessions coupled with poster and exhibitor showcases.
