A Research Hospital in Action

This one-day event is available to early and mid-career researchers. Participants will have an opportunity to learn how research can move from bench to bedside and back again, participate in hands-on workshops on consent, ethics, patient participation and the clinical research facility and identify methods of maximising output from data and samples. The event is organised by the newly established National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) GOSH Biomedical Research Centre Junior Faculty, a group aiming to support junior researchers at GOSH and ICH to lead paediatric research in the future.

Aims of the day will include:

  • Identify methods of bringing basic science, translational concepts and clinical trials teams together.
  • Review of the impact of the patient perspective
  • Collaboration and success in rare disease cohorts
  • Promoting an interface between clinical and non-clinical junior researchers.
  • Provide learning opportunities for early /middle career researchers in maximizing output from data and samples
  • Highlight the use of REDCAP as an electronic CRF capture database
  • Identifying the pitfalls and success of ethics and consent applications.

Outline of the Education Event:

The day will be split into 3 plenary sessions in the morning time which focus on:

RR2. Undertaking research with rare disease cohorts – how do we succeed

3. Reviewing the patient perspective in considering basic research and clinical trials

The afternoon sessions will be set out in workshop sessions with the following themes:

1. What can we do with the samples which would otherwise go RRRRRthen bin.

2. How do we ‘milk’ every opportunity in maximizing data collection.

3. Getting to grips with REDCAP

4. What makes me confident that my ethics/consent application will succeed.
