Wednesday May 20 is Clinical Trials Day, a day when we celebrate our researchers and the volunteers who participate in our clinical trials. This day has been chosen to commemorate James Lind’s scurvy clinical trial which commenced on May 20, 1747 and laid the foundation for all modern clinical research which followed.https://hmri.org.au/participate-research
