The 2017 UKCRF Network Conference

UK Clinical Research Facilities 13th Annual Conference 2017

Thanks to all those involved in making our 13th Annual UKCRF Network Conference in Glasgow a great success. The conference continues to grow and develop year on year, with 364 of us attending this time. Over the two days representatives from the NHS, academia, industry and third sector enjoyed a broad scope of talks, presentations and lively debate. The conference, which took place at the Scottish Exhibition Campus Glasgow, on the 6th and 7th July, was titled "Connected Care - Digital Health in Clinical Research".

The conference highlighted reflected the rapid advancement of biotechnology carving the way for improved health care and research capability in the modern NHS, and provided a platform to showcase all CRF achievements, support the CRF community to innovate and demonstrate new opportunities using digital technology for efficient and globally collaborative clinical research.

Topped off with the Conference Gala Dinner and Ceilidh at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the Glasgow conference was highly informative, stimulating and enjoyable.
