CCRA seminar: UK Clinical Research – A Professionals Awareness Update & The Landscape for CROs post Brexit

Clinical Professionals will be attending a vital two-day event hosted by the CCRA on the 29th-30th January at the Royal Society of medicine in London.

In an unquestionable time of industrial and economic upheaval across all sectors, the event looks to bring together various key members from Government, the Department of Health, industry regulators and experts in addition to the wider community of healthcare professionals to collaborate and provide insight on the latest developments and discuss potential plans for continued success of the UK domestic research industry.

The first seminar is the eighth in the CCRA’s series of Professional Awareness updates that aims to keep delegates well-informed of the changes within the sector, be it procedural, regulatory, legal or scientific.

The current developments of the potential “No Deal” Brexit, it is more important that ever to examine some of the possible outcomes of the situation. Perfect timing for the second seminar, “The Landscape for CROs Post Brexit”. Events such as the CCRA’s will allow for an open discussion whilst giving the opportunity to share concerns with government and regulators and to assess possible opportunities for UK CROs and business in the “post Brexit world”.
