Clinical Trials Day 2023

  • As we wrap-up 2024 Clinical Trials Week, we reflect on the collaborative spirit and remarkable achievements that have driven our efforts. Read our event wrap-up for an overview of some of the key moments from Clinical Trials Week (including just a few pictures from our Clinical Trials Day photo booth, with more coming later) in addition to highlights from our CCTS In Focus: Clinical Trials campaign.

    These events would not have been possible without your participation and support! Your feedback is vital in planning future events, and we would love for you to complete this survey if you attended any Clinical Trials Week activites.

  • Clinical Trials Day is an annual opportunity to recognize the many individuals who make clinical trials possible and to increase awareness of clinical research achievements and opportunities for collaboration. From those at the bench to those at the bedside, as well as the many who volunteer to participate in clinical studies, these individuals are #advancingdiscovery to improve medical treatments for all. We hope you'll join us Monday, May 20, 2024, from 7:30-9:30 am in the Wallace Tumor Institute lobby for breakfast, giveaways, and more as we seek to thank all those who make clinical research possible.

    This year, we are expanding our festivities to an entire week, with activities on Tuesday-Friday available to everyone at UAB and at the Partner Network Institutions. See the schedule below.

    We encourage you to RSVP below and check back soon for more information on Clinical Trials Day and a variety of additional activities related to clinical trials that we have planned throughout the week of May 20-24, 2024.
