The Academy's FORUM, in partnership with Cancer Research UK and the Wellcome Trust, held a meeting to explore the current environment for the regulation and governance of health research, five years on from the publication of the Academy's 2011 report: ‘A new pathway for the regulation and governance of health research’.
The Academy’s 2011 report identified key challenges in the regulation and governance of health research, including problems around regulation of clinical trials and the culture for research in the NHS, and made recommendations to improve this environment for the benefit of UK health research. Following publication of the report, the Health Research Authority (HRA) was established in line with the recommendations, in addition to other developments in this area such as the NHS reforms.
Five years on from the initial report, it is important to recognise and discuss the changes that have taken place in the regulation and governance of health research - including new challenges arising such as those around data governance - to ensure that the UK continues to position itself as a world leader in health research. This meeting provided an opportunity to bring together stakeholders from across the medical science and healthcare sector to inform current and future developments in the regulation and governance of health research.
This event was by invitation only, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this event. The meeting report from this workshop has now been published and is available on the sidebar on this page.
