Movement for Hope attended its first International Clinical Trials Day at the Leonard Wolfson Experimental Neurology Centre (LWENC) Clinical Research Facility (CRF). The Centre held its third annual open day on 20th May 2016, to mark International Clinical Trials Day (ICTD) at UCL Institute of Neurology. Over 100 visitors attended.


ICTD celebrates the day that James Lind, a Scottish naval surgeon, started his famous study to compare six treatments as part of a 1747 prospective controlled trial to treat scurvy. This marked the start of clinical trials and clinical research.


The LWENC CRF opened its doors to all visitors to meet CRF staff and learn about the CRFs latest activities. The event was very well attended, with visitors from a variety of backgrounds including neurology patients, carers, members of the general public, industry partners, charities, NHS staff and research students.


Movement for Hope’s board member, Sarah Ezekiel, was a keynote speaker at the event and collaborating artist, Martin Vishnick, a guitarist and composition instructor, delighted visitors with music at the open day. In addition to Sarah’s talk, Dr Vincinzo Libri, Head of the CRF, gave the audience an update on the CRFs latest activities. We were also pleased to be joined by friends at the Motor Neurone Disease Association, Join Dementia Research, and the Huntington’s Disease Association.
