Team members Sophie Bayley and Stuart Smith presenting their research (above photo).
On Friday 18th May the Pal Lab participated at International Clinical Trials Day 2018 at King’s College Hospital. The event featured stalls for staff and patients to learn about some of the innovative and novel research being carried out at the Trust and raise awareness of the importance of clinical trials in healthcare.
We presented findings from our studies and the progress of our CASTLE clinical trial, which is due to begin recruiting participants in September 2018. We also showed members of the public and professionals the DNA saliva collection kits we use in our studies and explained how saliva is turned into DNA in a step-by-step guide. It was an exciting and informative day for everyone who took part!
