Clinical Research Day is the start of the new research year at the Department of Clinical Research (DKF). In line with the DKF's scientific culture, Clinical Research Day provides knowledge and inspiration for the scientific work in the following months. It creates the basis for evidence-based patient care in the future with a high degree of innovation and quality.
Accordingly, the 2020 event was opened by a groundbreaking key note lecture by Prof. Ole Fröbert from the University of Örebrö (Sweden) entitled "Disruptive, low cost, nationwide randomized trials. More and better evidence for clinical medicine?". His unconventional approaches and methods provide new ideas for innovative clinical research, especially of new study designs for randomised controlled trials.
As every year, the young scientists from DKF research groups were at the focus of the scientific programme. With their short lectures and poster presentations, they have offered an interesting overview of current academic research projects. The three best oral presentations and the three best poster presentations heve been awarded at the legendary Mojito Research Party. Please find the winners above.
