Clinical Trials Day Honors Clinical Research Professionals

May 23, 2019

On May 20, the Clinical and Translational Science Institute joined celebrations around the world as part of Clinical Trials Day, an annual event recognizing those at the forefront of conducting and raising awareness of clinical trials in the hope of improving our medical knowledge and overall health.

“There are a variety of CTSI teams, functions, and programs that work to make clinical research and trials a more seamless process from start to finish, including helping to clear barriers, connecting researchers to resources and expertise, and engaging communities and participants for University of Minnesota research studies,” said CTSI’s Deputy Director and Clinical Translational Research Services core Director Dr. Dan Weisdorf. “We want to say thank you to the many staff at CTSI and the health research community for their continued efforts in bringing awareness to research and helping ensure Minnesotans live healthier, happier lives.”
