New podcast series looking at innovative trail design launches

Last updated on 30 Jul 2020

The HRA is launching a new series of podcasts to explore innovative trial design and delivery - working with the Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre (ECMC) and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). 

The podcasts look at changes to the clinical research landscape as clinical trials evolve to find new, faster and more efficient ways to bring new treatments to patients. A new episode will be released every Wednesday during July and August.

Designed for anyone with an interest in complex or innovative trials – including researchers, Research Ethics Committee members and patients - they feature a range of experts including experienced researchers, patients, an ethics committee chair and members of the HRA. They are also a great resource for those who are keen to understand how innovation in trial design and delivery can play a key role in fast-changing, real-world situations – like the global COVID-19 crisis.

Available on the HRA's SoundCloud, the podcasts in the series are:

Already live

Going live later this summer

  • Week 9: Reaching a Consensus on CID Trials
  • Week 10: Designing CID Trials
  • Week 11: Platform Trials in Clinical Oncology 

The podcasts were produced in response to recommendations made in a published paper; Effective delivery of Complex Innovative Design (CID) cancer trials- a consensus statement, published by the ECMC, NIHR, HRA and partners in the British Journal of Cancer, earlier this year.
