23 June 2016

On Tuesday 21 June 2016, the MRC CTU held a Twitter Q&A on how we are developing faster trials to achieve faster impact for patients on clinical trials. This Q&A was also part of the MRC Festival of Medical Research.

Our panel answering all your questions included: Max Parmar, Director of MRC Clinical Trials Unit and the Institute of Clinical Trials and Methodology at UCL and Professor of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology; Patrick Phillips, a senior statistician at the MRC Clinical Trials Unit at UCL; and Annabelle South, the Policy, Communications and Research Impact Coordinator at the MRC Clinical Trials Unit at UCL.

The Q&A ran from 12:45-13:30 (GMT), covering a range of topics including:

  • Why we need faster trials
  • Advantages of MAMS trial design
  • Why some trial results take longer to have an impact
  • The importance of patient involvement
