Clinical Trials Working Group
Early in 2021, we started work on an exciting initiative - the ‘Clinical Trials Working Group for Central Nervous System Drug Delivery’.
In collaboration with Mr Kristian Aquilina, Consultant Paediatric Neurosurgeon at Great Ormond Street Hospital, UK, we launched this at a virtual meeting on the 1st March 2021. Joined by 38 leading brain tumour research scientists, clinicians and regulatory experts, from the UK, EU and US, we discussed how we can work together to accelerate paediatric clinical trials of CNS drug delivery devices.
In April/May 2021, we ran a pump prime funding opportunity for projects (up to £10k each) to move trial proposals into an ‘advanced state of readiness’. One application was selected for funding and more details will be released once the contracts have been agreed.
In November 2021, we ran a workshop on ‘Clinical Trial Readiness for CNS Drug Delivery’. A summary report of this meeting will be available over the coming weeks.
