The event gives the public the opportunity to join a live discussion with experts from The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust about research into COVID-19.

International Clinical Trials Day is held each year on 20th May and commemorates the date when the first controlled clinical trial was conducted in 1747. Since then, research has played a vital role in improving healthcare for everyone. Now more than ever clinical research is crucial, as it will help us understand more about COVID-19, and progress the development of potential treatments and effective vaccines in the future.

If you would like to hear more about how Sheffield is at the centre of this important work you are invited to join a live discussion with experts from The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust about research into COVID-19 on Wednesday 24th June 2020 at 6pm. ​

The live discussion will be hosted by Sheffield Culture Hub, a collaboration between the University of Sheffield, Sheffield City Council and Our Favourite Places, launched to host arts and cultural events online, as well as other activities from around the city to support the cultural and creative sectors during the coronavirus lockdown.
