Clinical Research Day 2022

 

On 10 February 2022, this year's kick-off into the new research year at the Department of Clinical Research (DKF) took place.

The inspiring Keynote Lecture was presented by Prof. Lenny Verkooijen, University Medical Center Utrecht, The Netherlands, on the topic "Trials within cohorts: Integration of clinical research in routine oncology care". It was followed live in the lecture hall and online by an audience of about 300.

Afterwards, junior researchers at DKF presented an impressive cross-section of the clinical research landscape. The best poster presentations were selected by experts. The best short presentations were determined by audience voting.
